Stimulation of ovulation: indications
There are situations when ovulation in womenof childbearing age are very rare or do not occur. Without ovulation, the onset of pregnancy is impossible. Therefore, as soon as the gynecologist diagnoses this problem in the patient, he must prescribe to her the stimulation of ovulation. Thanks to this procedure, thousands of women who could not conceive become happy mummies. If a couple has been unable to conceive a child for a year or more under the condition of regular unprotected sex, this is an indication for the purpose of stimulating ovulation. If the age of spouses exceeds 35 years, then this period is reduced to six months: if a couple tries to conceive a child and after half a year the result does not come, then this is also an occasion to turn to a gynecologist. If the reason is not in male infertility, then, as a rule, the problem lies in the absence of ovulation. It is important that before the stimulation of ovulation is prescribed, both spouses pass the examination. This will allow, on the one hand, to exclude male infertility as the reason for the impossibility of conceiving a child, and on the other hand it will help the doctor to make the program of treatment more competently. Stimulation is not prescribed if the reason for the absence of ovulation lies in the deviations of the thyroid hormone, prolactin and male hormones. Until these indicators are corrected, no procedure for stimulating ovulation will result. In addition, it is important to take into account the fact that if a woman has obstruction of the fallopian tubes, then after the stimulation of ovulation, an ectopic pregnancy may occur, so before starting this exercise, it is necessary to perform a laparoscopy in order to avoid obstruction.

Based on the analysis, the results of the examinations, etc., the doctor will be able to make a forecast for the further development of the oocyte, and also to prescribe an adequate scheme for taking the medication. Most widespread was Klostilbegit. The classical scheme of taking this drug is as follows: it is appointed from the 5th to the 9th day of the menstrual cycle. In some cases, additional stimulation is carried out with the help of Puregon, then Klostilbegit is prescribed from the 3rd to the 7th day of the cycle. And all this period is regularly monitored by the process of maturation of the follicle with the help of ultrasound.

In order to determine these parameters, an individual approach to each patient is important. A few days after the initiation of stimulation, the first ultrasound is carried out, which will subsequently be performed every 2-3 days. Ultrasound is performed until the follicles reach a size of 20-25 mm. To prevent regression of follicles and exclude the possibility of formation of follicular cysts, it is very important to prescribe a hCG prick. Made at this stage, this injection provokes the "start" of ovulation. Usually, 24-36 hours after the injection, the ovulation process begins. This is confirmed by ultrasound examination. After this, the patient is given injections of Utrozhestan or Progesterone to additionally support the yellow body of the ovaries. According to numerous reviews of patients, such therapy on the first attempt leads to conception. When appointing therapy to stimulate ovulation, the doctor must take into account the male factor.
