Ovulation Induction

Ovulation Induction (OI) is a fertility treatment which uses hormonal medication to induce or regulate ovulation, and/or increase the number of eggs produced during your menstrual cycle. Because these powerful medications produce significant changes in your system, their effects are tracked by blood tests and ultrasound.

Please notify the nurses if you need to take any medication during your OI cycle. Some medications such as aspirin, antihistamines, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can block ovulation. It is advised that you avoid these medications as you approach ovulation during your cycle.

If you are given any prescriptions by your family doctor or any other physician, remember to inform them of your intent to get pregnant so that they can order a pregnancy safe medication.
