Individualised Controlled Ovarian Stimulation

The process in which the egg is prepared for fertilisation in a woman’s ovaries and is released into the fallopian tubes to meet with the potential sperm for fertilisation, is called ovulation. When this process is stimulated by inducing ovarian follicular development and maturation of the egg using medications, it is called ovarian stimulation. Ovarian stimulation is a standard procedure used for successful outcomes in assisted reproductive techniques like IVF, ICSI, IUI etc. as this procedure not only prepares the egg but also prepares a woman’s uterus for embryo implantation. Some of the major advantages of ovarian stimulation are:

  •     Helps induce ovulation in anovulatory women (a woman who does not have periods)
  •     Induces the maturation of numerous ovarian follicles simultaneously
  •     Helps to predict of the timing of egg maturation
  •     Enables collection of numerous mature eggs in each cycle

The conventional controlled ovarian stimulation is a one size fit all approach, which may not benefit all patients. At Srishti, we have adopted Individualised Controlled Ovarian Stimulation

(iCOS) which involves ovarian stimulation to suit each woman’s infertility condition and unique characteristics. Few essential parameters like age, weight, previous reproductive history, type of infertility, and ovarian reserve are considered to tailor the most optimal individualized controlled ovarian stimulation (iCOS) strategy. This technique helps to secure the shortest time to pregnancy and live birth. This also reduces the risk of developing ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. Thus our specialists do a thorough evaluation of your condition to design your personalised treatment to achieve the best possible outcome for your condition.
