Ovulation Induction & Follicular Monitoring - What All Should You Know?

Irregular ovulation or anovulation (a condition where a woman does not ovulate at all) can be quite agonizing, triggering a host of health problems, including difficulty in conceiving. The irregular ovulation could be an amalgamation of many factors including obesity, thyroid disorders, PCOS, endometriosis, fibroids, uncontrolled intake of caffeinated and alcoholic drinks, to name a few. With the advancement of medical science, the problem is no longer a big deal. In this article, we will discuss the role of ovulation induction and follicular monitoring in dealing with irregular ovulation cycles and the related complications.

What is Ovulation Induction?

Ovulation induction comes as a blessing for women who don't ovulate regularly (there is a deviation from the usual pattern of ovulation that takes place before every menstrual cycle). The procedure aims at regularizing the ovulation process. The medications (often hormones are used in the treatment) play a pivotal role in stimulating the follicular development of the ovaries so that healthy eggs are produced, developed, matured and finally released during ovulation. The procedure also benefits women get their menstrual cycles sans the ovulation (Anovulatory Menstrual Cycles). The problem mainly surfaces due to a drop in the progesterone level (a hormone responsible for the uterine lining thickening).

Steps involved

  1. The ovulation induction is an important process that requires a thorough examination and evaluation of the patient to understand their ovulation process, hormonal balance (or imbalance) and all the factors that could be a possible trigger resulting in the ovulation problem.
  2. In the next step, the physician carries out the stimulation of the ovulation process. For this purpose, selected hormones are given to the affected individual either orally or in the form of injections.
  3. The hormones work towards restoring the balance along with follicular development. This stimulation contributes significantly towards maturing an egg and ensuring its release for ovulation to take place.
  4. Through a series of regular pelvic ultrasounds, doctors are able to carefully monitor the development of the follicles along with how well the lining of the uterus thickens, following the ovulation induction.
  5. For those planning to conceive, ovulation induction, with proper monitoring, goes a long way to ensure at least one healthy egg will be available for the fertilization to take place.

Some women can also opt for Intrauterine Insemination, a pathbreaking procedure whereby, the sperm (collected and stored earlier) is injected into the vagina to facilitate the fertilization process.

Downside of the Ovulation Induction
The ovulation induction requires precision and accuracy and should be performed by experienced professionals who know their skill well.

  1. Even a small mistake in the ovulation induction can trigger many complications including Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome. The condition can swell up the ovaries with abdominal pain, vomiting, breathing problems (shortness of breath), sudden and rapid weight gain. The ovaries also appear tender with some pain.
  2. Ovulation induction increases the risk of gestational diabetes, hypertension, nausea, to name a few.

Abdominal Disorders And Ayurveda - What Should You Know?

Abdominal Disorders And Ayurveda - What Should You Know?

If you start sneezing, you know there’s something wrong with your nose. However, if your stomach hurts, there could be a number of factors behind it. The trouble could lie with your stomach, small intestine, large intestine, spleen, liver, etc. The good news is that most of these conditions are fairly easy to resolve. With Ayurveda, you can use things in your kitchen to treat your pain and get immediate relief. Five of the most common abdominal disorders and ways to treat them with Ayurveda are:

  1. Irritable Bowel Syndrome: If you find yourself complaining of nausea, stomach aches, chronic diarrhea or constipation and headaches, you could be suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome. According to Ayurveda, this is caused by a buildup of toxins in the body. A simple remedy for this problem is to have a teaspoon of psyllium husk with half a cup of yogurt after dinner.
  2. Acid Reflux: Acid reflux or Gastroesophageal reflux disease is said to be caused by a dominance of the pitta dosha. Common symptoms of this condition include pain while swallowing and heart burn. To prevent this condition and treat it, you must limit your consumption of alcohol, caffeinated drinks and processed foods. A teaspoon of equal quantities of powdered rock candy, green cardamom and fennel with a glass of cold milk can be a very effective cure.
  3. Food Intolerance: In the case of food intolerances, the ama or toxins in the body can accumulate in the digestive system and keep certain types of foods from being broken down. This in turn creates a gas inside the intestines and weakens bowel movement. Many of these allergies can be prevented simply by living a healthier lifestyle. Yoga asanas can also be very helpful.
  4. Constipation: When undigested food accumulates in the digestive system, the vata dosha is impaired. This creates an obstruction and keeps bowel movements from being smooth and regular. To treat this condition, you should eat plenty of fiber rich foods and drink lots of water. Having a tablespoon of castor oil before going to bed can help facilitate bowel movements.
  5. Stomach Ulcers: Ulcers in the stomach refer to eruptions or lesions on the inner lining of the stomach walls. These are typically caused by stress, an unhealthy diet and a bad lifestyle. In most cases, people with elevated vata doshas suffer the most from stomach ulcers. Ayurvedic home remedies for this condition include licorice tea, probiotics, garlic boiled in milk and water and honey.
