Summary

Conventional ovulation induction (OI) treatments are highly effective in achieving pregnancy when anovulation is the only factor in a couple’s conception delay. Fertility declines with female age and lifestyle factors including smoking, alcohol intake and body weight negatively influence the success of treatment. Careful planning and monitoring of treatment is necessary to avoid complications such as multiple pregnancy and ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS).
