What can help trigger ovulation?
Clomiphene is the most commonly prescribed ovulation-induction drug used to stimulate ovulation in women with infrequent ovulation or amenorrhea.
Can ovulation be triggered?
Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a natural hormone that helps with the final maturation of the eggs and triggers the ovaries to release the mature eggs (ovulation). It also stimulates the corpus luteum to secrete progesterone to prepare the lining of the uterus for implantation of the fertilized egg.
How do you confirm ovulation?
There are several ways to detect ovulation, including urine test kits to measure LH levels, transvaginal ultrasound, endometrial biopsy, blood tests to measure hormone levels, and the basal body temperature (BBT) chart.
How do I know ovulation is over?
As you get close to ovulation, your cervical mucus will become copious, clear and slippery—like egg whites. It stretches between your fingers. Once your discharge becomes scant and sticky again, ovulation is over.
What vitamins can I take to help me ovulate?
Vitamin C helps regulate the menstruation cycle and normal ovulation. As vitamin C is not naturally stored in the body, it is recommended you take a daily dose of 500mg twice a day.
What are the reasons for egg not releasing?

- Body stresses such as: Eating disorders. Unusually ambitious exercise training. Rapid weight loss. Low body weight. Obesity.
- Some hormonal abnormalities such as: Thyroid problems. Pituitary-gland problems. Adrenal-gland problems. Polycystic ovary syndrome.
