Ovulation Induction

Ovulation induction (OI) is a fertility treatment often effective for women with the following conditions:

  • Women who do not ovulate (anovulation)
  • Absent menstrual period (amenorrhea) or irregular periods (oligomenorrhea) due to abnormal pituitary hormone levels, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) or other causes
  • Hyperprolactinemia
  • Other ovulatory disorders

Ovulation induction treatments frequently include intrauterine insemination, a procedure in which washed semen is placed directly in the uterus, in order to maximize the chances of pregnancy. 

Ovulation induction patients at CRM are cared for by a clinical team that includes their physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner. Ovulation induction orientation classes, including a step-by-step walkthrough of the process and the opportunity to discuss any questions with a nurse, are held twice weekly at CRM's Upper East Side location.
