Ovulation induction as part of infertility treatment is resorted only when there is documented infertility despite unprotected and frequent intercourse. Age barrier and patients wishes can be taken into consideration and the decision to undergo induction can be taken at an earlier stage. Ovigyn is started only if Clomid fails to work as it contains exogenous steroid hormones and hyper stimulation of the ovary is a major concern especially with ovigyn as in clomid its the endogenous stimulation that takes place. I would recommend concomitant use of both. Ovigyn should replace clomid rather than being added to it. Please consult your doctor before making any modifications in your meds.
