Observing a woman’s menstrual cycle, tracking the development of her egg towards ovulation, and monitoring ovulation itself, is known as cycle monitoring. This series of actions spans multiple days and assists reproductive specialists in identifying the most favourable moment to conceive or utilize assisted reproductive techniques like In vitro fertilization or Intrauterine insemination.
To check the ovaries and monitor follicle growth, an ultrasound and blood work is carried out. These are routinely done to predict the ovulation time and subsequently determine when intercourse or insemination should occur to coincide with that ovulation. Cycle monitoring is also done as part of the IVF process.
