The principle of ovulation induction is to stimulate the ovaries (with Fertility drugs) to produce a single egg (certainly no more than three) and to allow fertilization to occur by natural intercourse.
Women most suited to this form of treatment are those with hormonal disorders and a condition known as polycystic ovary syndrome. Crucial success is that intercourse is timed to coincide with the ovulation which drug treatment has achieved. Monitoring of the response to treatment is therefore a vital part of the program to maximize the chance of a successful pregnancy and minimize any risks.
In particular monitoring is designed to avoid any over production of eggs and there by remove the risk of multiple pregnancies.
The average chance of conception after one cycle of ovulation induction treatment is between 15 and 25 percent.
