Induce ovulation even if ovulate every month?
Good morning GynaeDoc,

Could you please tell me if it is possible to induce ovulation (taking for example Clomid) even if I ovulate every month? We are trying for a year now without success. Laparoscopy – nothing wrong. Sperm count = 100%.

I was thinking before spending thousands on fertility procedures, to induce the eggs (even if it means twins, triplets) so that we can try one more time and have a bigger chance of conceiving.

Please let me know if this would be possible.

Many thanks.

You should not contemplate inducing ovulation without close supervision by a gynaecologist, preferable a fertility expert. As you say, there are risks such as hyperstimulation which can be extremely dangerous. If you are ovulating, other causes should be sought for your failure to conceive and this would best be done by a fertility expert.
