Have you tried conceiving multiple times with no success? Then the solution you may need is induction therapy. Motherhood is a blissful experience; sadly, due to genetic factors and underlying medical conditions, you may not experience the happiness of motherhood. Do not fret. IVF is the most effective infertility remedy. However, if you are looking to try IVF, you need to enhance the likelihood of conceiving by trying Newport Beach ovulation induction. Fangyin Meng, MD, Ph.D., specializes in recurrent implantation failure at the Newport facility. Here’s how Dr. Meng employs patient-centered services to guarantee conception.
Ovulation Induction is a fertility treatment that leverages the endocrine system through the use of medications. The procedure takes a three-step approach:
You may ovulate and not get pregnant or not ovulate at all. IVF, intrauterine insemination, and other fertility treatments may not work if your ova are not viable. The first step is to stimulate your follicles, achieved by the following:
· Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) – This is an injectable medication that mimics the natural FSH. It stimulates the ovaries to produce egg-containing follicles. The hormone also ensures the eggs reach maturity.
· Clomiphene Citrate- or Serophene, the tablets trick the pituitary gland into sending signals to stimulate FSH and LH production. Serophene is taken orally for five days on the onset of the menstrual cycle. The hormones stimulate mature follicle production. The side effects of clomiphene citrate are hot flashes and mood changes but resolve over time.
· Gonadotropins- The injectable medication carries the follicles to maturity. The dosage period is between 5-12 days. You can inject yourself, but it is imperative to consult a fertility expert to prevent multiple pregnancies.
· Gonadotropins releasing hormone analogs (GnRH) analogs are the opposite of GnRH. They cause a spike in FSH and LH, then suppress them. The suppression and spiking sequence enhances control of the cycle for predictable outcomes.
Induction therapy involves risks and requires real-time monitoring to mitigate them. Ultrasound and, in rare cases, blood tests help the doctor analyze your endocrine system and how it responds to induction therapy. During the control period, the doctor records the start and stop date for each medication.
The final phase for ovulation induction is the egg release phase. Your medical practitioner will check for the maturity of the follicles. Mature follicles are about 20 mm in diameter. What follows is an hCG intramuscular injection to prepare you for IVF or direct conception.
Ovulation Induction therapy requires expert care for guaranteed efficacy. The possible side risks such as multiple pregnancies and ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome are manageable by accurate monitoring. It is best if you seek expert fertility care for ovulation induction.
