Women who do not ovulate regularly will find that ovulation induction is greatly helpful. Regularizing ovulation is the goal of the procedure. It is one of the various kinds of treatment to induce ovulation for eggs to mature and be released in the ovaries to match timed intercourse or artificial insemination. In follicular monitoring, a doctor monitors the development of the follicle from the start of the cycle until it releases an egg. IVF assessment and timing depend on it.
