Timed Intercourse is typically the preliminary treatment suggested to couples who are just starting their fertility journey. A timed intercourse cycle requires ovulation induction typically with oral medications that will begin 2-4 days after menses.  A patient will be asked to come into the office approximately 4 to 5 times so the doctor can monitor the follicular development and predict the time of ovulation. Based on monitoring results, the doctor will then inform the patient and partner on what dates they should have intercourse.
