Ovulation Induction at the Center for Fertility and Reproductive Endocrinology

UPMC Content 2

The Center for Fertility and Reproductive Endocrinology offers ovulation induction to enhance ovulation and help improve the chances of conceiving.

This approach helps:

  • Women ovulate more consistently and predictably, if they do not do so already
  • Couples with unexplained fertility
  • Couples with infertility due to male fertility problems

Ovulation induction can also be done as part of empiric therapy. This involves starting treatment before you have a firm diagnosis for whatever is causing your infertility.

Medications for Ovulation Induction

We have experience and expertise in prescribing and managing a variety of medications for ovulation induction, including:

  • Clomiphene citrate (such as Clomid ®)
  • Aromatase inhibitors
  • Injectable gonadotropins

  • Optimizes your chances of conceiving
  • Meets your goals
  • Is consistent with your values
