Many women suffer from irregular periods which are sometimes associated with an ovulation or intermittent ovulation.
A classic example is that of the Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). This condition is very often misdiagnosed which can lead to delay in treatment and mismanagement.
Women with anovulation may benefit among others from ovulation induction with medication such as Clomiphene Citrate (clomid), Tamoxifen (femara) or Letrozole. The process involves follicle tracking during the treatment cycle with or without ovulation induction via a trigger injection.
A maximum of 3-6 cycles are recommended with this method prior to proceeding to IVF.
