During a regular ovulation cycle, there is a surge in both the luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone levels. These hormones help eggs release, grow, and mature so they can be ready for fertilization. Unfortunately, the slightest hormonal imbalance can disrupt this very delicate process and lead to infertility. If an imbalance occurs, ovulation induction medications can help solve infertility issues.
For most patients, infertility treatment consists of taking fertility medications (ovulation induction) in conjunction with egg collection and freezing, intrauterine insemination (IUI), or in vitro fertilization (IVF). Typically, women who are struggling with infertility will be divided into 2 groups depending on whether they are ovulating or not.
