Optimising the menstrual cycle / Focused Intercourse
Not all couples that come to see us require fertility treatment. Often, it already helps to monitor the cycle (see menstrual cycle monitoring) in order to determine the optimal time for intercourse to conceive. Clomiphen is often prescribed in order to support the oocyte maturation. On the 10th day of the menstrual cylce the first ultrasound is performed to determine the size of the follicles and the thickness of the endometrium. Once a follicle has reached a size of 18 to 22mm ovulation is initiated by injecting an ampoule hcg (5000IE) under the skin. Ovulation will take place 36 hours later which would be the ideal time to conceive.
