What is superovulation?

Superovulation, also known as controlled ovarian hyperstimulation, consists of producing a higher number of oocytes than usual. This occurs due to the administration of gonadotropins, which is why it is quite common in assisted reproduction treatments.

It should be noted that superovulation must be controlled at all times to avoid putting the patient's health at risk. For this reason, various ultrasound controls will be necessary to monitor ovarian hyperstimulation. Its objective is to obtain a large number of eggs to fertilize them in the laboratory and increase the probability of pregnancy.
