Usually you start on the second day of the menstrual cycle. Stimulation may start between the first and fifth day. The patient will start stimulation according to our instructions, however it is very important to confirm the final rest by ultrasound, to begin the medication, decide the dose and the treatment we are going to use. ​

I think that it all depends on the protocol and on your clinical team. That might just depend on that protocol that they’ve optimized for you. They will give you very clear instructions as to when you should start your drugs.

About this question:

What day patients start taking stimulation medicines and how the starting day depends on other factors?

​There are few stimulation protocols that can be scheduled. When is the right time to start depends on tests and scan results. Are there any common points?
