Infertility - Ovulation Induction

Infertility - Ovulation

They work by stimulating the production of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) in your pituitary gland, which in turn trigger the growth and maturation of eggs in your ovaries. These drugs are usually taken for five days, starting from the third day of your menstrual cycle (day 3 to day 7).


One of the most important aspects of taking femara or clomid is to track your ovulation, which is the release of an egg from your ovary. Ovulation usually occurs about 14 days before your next period, but this can vary depending on your cycle length and response to the medication. To know when you are ovulating, you can use urine testing kits that detect the surge of LH in your urine. LH surges about 24 to 36 hours before ovulation, so testing your urine daily can help you identify your fertile window.


To use a urine testing kit, you need to collect a sample of your urine in a clean container and dip a test strip into it for a few seconds. Then, you need to wait for the results to appear on the strip, usually within five minutes. A positive result means that you have an LH surge and you are likely to ovulate soon. A negative result means that you have not had an LH surge yet and you need to keep testing until you get a positive result.


The best time to have intercourse is on the day of your LH surge and the following day, as these are the days when you are most likely to conceive. You can also use other methods to confirm your ovulation, such as tracking your basal body temperature, cervical mucus, or ovulation pain. However, urine testing is the most reliable and convenient way to pinpoint your ovulation when taking femara or clomid.


Taking Femara or Clomid and checking your ovulation with urine testing can help you develop a plan that maximizes your chances of getting pregnant.
