Multiple Ovulation

Ovulation is the process in which a mature egg is released and pushed through the fallopian tube so it becomes available for fertilization. The lining of the uterine wall thickens to hold the fertilized egg. If conception does not take place, the uterine lining along with blood sheds as a menstrual period.

Normally, one single egg is ovulated each month but in some cases more than one egg is produced, which is called Multiple Ovulation. If both eggs are released within a time period of 24 hours, then there is a possibility a woman will have fraternal twins. This condition occurs in only 5 – 10 % of fertility cycles. The chances of twins are rare as most multiple ovulations result in a type of miscarriage referred to as Vanishing Twin Phenomenon.

Multiple Embryonic Ovulation:

Although, multiple ovulation is not common it can be induced through medicine. Certain medications encourage the ovaries to produce multiple eggs. This process is used for an in vitro fertilization process known as Zygote Intrafallopian Transfer.

The Process Of “Zygote Intrafallopian Transfer”:

When the fallopian tubes are blocked, the medically-stimulated multiple ovulation eggs are removed through a procedure called the Aspiration Procedure. Once the eggs are fertilized they are placed deep into the fallopian tube on the other side of the blockage through a Laparascopic Procedure. After a few days the first signs of pregnancy can be noticed.
