Ovulation and Ovaries Answer A36114
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If the dominant follicle rupture has not occurred in response to treatment with ovulation inducers, then your treating doctor/gynecologist might consider giving you HCG trigger injection to help with ovulation and conception. Discuss about further treatment options with your treating doctor/gynecologist. The endometrial thickness of 6mm and above is considered to be good for conception, and follicle size above 20mm is considered good and for impending rupture for egg release. If you are not successful in getting pregnant with 3-5 cycles of treatment, assisted reproductive techniques like IVF or ICSI could be helpful; in which, normal healthy sperms (from your partner) will be selected and washed to be fertilized with the egg, and then the embryos will be transferred to your womb. If you are trying for pregnancy, monitor cervical mucus changes and the BBT (basal body temperature) charting to predict your ovulation (along with the follicular study) and time your intercourse for having fruitful results. Have intercourse in positions that allow for deeper penetration for high deposit of semen. Have diet with foods rich in zinc content to ensure better maturation of egg and sperms. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
