The current available fertility treatments that address Ovulation Dysfunction are limited and may vary from fertility clinic to fertility clinic. At New Hope, Ovulation Induction is the commonly prescribed approach. Using fertility medication like Clomiphene Citrate (Clomid) or Letrozole, fertility doctors have seen great success in temporarily reversing ovarian failure. This course of fertility drugs is also used to address other issues like Polycystic Ovary Syndrome or PCOS.
Because Ovulation Dysfunction frequently stems from a hormone imbalance, it is rarely an isolated cause of infertility. Many women will find other areas of fertility that should be addressed at the same time. For example, the cervical mucous that helps nourish and guide sperm to the egg during fertilization, might not be present. Male factor infertility might be present as well. When multiple factors are contributing to an infertility status, fertility specialists will frequently deem the case “unexplained infertility.” This simply means that pregnancy troubles cannot be attributed to any one cause. In these cases, it is important that your fertility doctor provides you with a complete evaluation so that you have the best chance of becoming pregnant.
