Dear Pagoda

Indeed it is possible to stimulate and trigger ovulation in a stimulated cycle without progressing to the IVF phase. However this will require careful monitoring in order to prevent hyper stimulation syndrome. A basic form of stimulation in fact is the use of clomiphene citrate (clomid, serofene, fertimed etc), which has been used for several decades now. However, should you not have an adequate response with the oral preparations, it might be necessary to introduce injectables and certainly once this occurs careful monitoring is imperative.
