Ovulation Induction

The process of using medications to stimulate ovulation in women with irregular or absent ovulation or anovulation is referred to as ovulation induction. This is usually the first treatment used and can be paired with other treatments.

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

A non-surgical procedure, also known as artificial insemination, that places prepared sperm cells into the woman’s uterus to produce a pregnancy. Is used for unexplained infertility and is less costly than other more invasive procedures.

Ultrasound Surveillance

Uses transvaginal ultrasound to evaluate structures in the pelvis such as the uterus, endometrium and ovaries. This will help determine is any pathology is present and determine size and number of ovarian follicles before ovulation.


A special kind of ultrasound exam. Fluid is put into the uterus through the cervix using a thin plastic tube. Sound waves are then used to create images of the lining of the uterus. The fluid helps show more detail than when ultrasound is used alone.

This can be done for:

  • Scar tissue
  • Abnormal uterine shape
  • Problems with the lining of the uterus
