Making your dreams of parenting a reality
What to expect
Timed intercourse is the process of monitoring your ovarian cycle via ultrasound, and having sex around the time (2-3 days around a positive ovulation indication or at a basal body temperature (BBT) rise).
For a timed intercourse cycle, follicular development will be monitored through an ultrasound during a woman’s menstrual cycle. Many individuals will develop their eggs naturally in a process known as follicular recruitment.
Others, however, may take oral medication to assist in this development.
By monitoring the females’ egg development, our fertility specialist will be able to determine the window of time in which the woman is ovulating. This allows couples to engage in sexual intercourse at the appropriate time giving you the best chance of getting pregnant through natural intercourse. Because sperm can live inside the woman’s body for up to 5 days, you will be instructed to engage in intercourse every other day during this optimal fertile window.
It may be important to determine if there are any male factors before moving on with this treatment because the egg will be fertilized through ejaculation into the woman’s vagina and have to travel to the egg inside the woman’s uterus or fallopian tube.
