Anovulation Treatment

Anovulation is when a woman has irregular ovulation or no ovulation, making it difficult to get pregnant. Find out some anovulation treatment options to help you overcome your situation to get pregnant fast.

Anovulation. It means, simply, “not ovulating”. But for the woman suffering from anovulation, there is nothing simple at all about it. It can be a really difficult thing to go through, and can be a real stressful situation for a couple to go through. Anovulation is actually rather common, affecting between 6 and 15 percent of women. Anovulation affects the number of viable eggs that are available and makes it difficult for a woman to get pregnant. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Causes of anovulation

There are several causes of anovulation, most of which are hormonal imbalances that disrupt the woman’s reproductive cycle. Other causes of anovulation can be things like underlying fertility problems, lifestyle factors, PCOS, or thyroid or pituitary problems. It is important to monitor your menstrual cycle so that you know if there is something weird going on with your ovulation cycles. Some of the most common symptoms of anovulation are things like irregular periods, excessive menstrual periods, or no menstrual periods, irregular basal body temperature, and reduced PMS symptoms.

Treatment for anovulation

It is important that if you think you are suffering from anovulation that you get treatment and speak to a doctor right away. If you don’t get treatment, anovulation can turn into infertility, and you might not ever be able to get pregnant. When you see your doctor regarding your anovulation, there are several tests that your doctor will perform to try to find out what exactly is causing your problems. You will get blood tests to determine your hormone levels, and a pelvic exam to make sure everything is normal. You might also need to have an ultrasound performed to see what is going on inside. Your doctor will most likely also have you chart your basal temperature and your ovulation cycles as well.

Anovulation can be treated

Anovulation is not the same thing as infertility. It doesn’t mean that you can never have children. In fact, anovulation is usually fairly easy to treat and is reversible in many cases. The most drastic thing that you can do to reverse the effects of anovulation is to change your lifestyle. This includes exercise, diet, stress, drugs, alcohol, smoking, and much more. Making positive lifestyle changes are one of the best things you can do for anovulation. If simple lifestyle changes don’t work, your doctor might want for you to go on fertility drugs such as clomid that are made to induce ovulation. If you are experiencing anovulation, don’t be discouraged! This condition can be treated fairly easily!

    It would be best to repeat taking the the home pregnancy test on the following day. After seeing the result, seeing your doctor would be the next best thing to do. Your doctor can help further confirm a possible pregnancy by performing some blood tests and can help give you insight about your current condition, which can consequently give you the best treatment options appropriate for your needs.

    An anovulatory cycle is a menstrual cycle during which the ovaries do not release an egg. The reasons for anovulation are many. Some of the easily diagnosed ones are breastfeeding, excessive weight gain or loss, illnesses, quitting birth control pills or shots, strenuous exercise, stress and travel. There are lots of ways to correct anovulation. But before you start any treatment, seek the advice of your physician first. They can prescribe several drugs that will help to bring on ovulation.

    Treatment for anovulatory cycles basically includes making positive lifestyle changes. I do recommend you to eat right, exercise well, avoid stress and bad habits for you to regulate your hormonal imbalances. Birth control pills are initially prescribed to regulate your menstrual cycles. Once your period already becomes regular, you can easily get pregnant.
