IVF and Advanced Fertility Treatment
Controlled Ovarian Hyperstimulation
What is it?
It is a process that the ovaries are stimulated by fertility medication to produce ovulatory follicle(s). It is used to stimulate the ovary to produce 2 mature follicles and each mature follicle has 1 egg.

The goal is to produce 1 mature follicle and restore normal ovulatory function for women with irregular periods. For women with regular periods, it is to superovulate follicle production and increase pregnancy rates.
How does it work?
Usually, a combination of oral fertility medication (clomiphinecitrate) and injectible fertility hormones (follicle stimulation hormone) are used.
