Usually, ovarian stimulation can take up to 10 to 12 days for the follicles to reach maturity, size and do puncture or during intrauterine dissemination it can be scattered in this procedure. But usually the stimulation can take 10 to 12 days until it is time to pick up the oocytes.

For most people, it’s an injection for about 10 to 11 days and it says from of daily injections and then having that egg retrieval 36 hours later. For most people it would be done within two weeks in total. Some people can take a little bit longer than that and might take out 18 – 19 days. Certainly most people by the time they’re getting up to 21 days and it’s not responding to drugs, that I think we’d be thinking about canceling the cycle and thinking about other strategies.
