The protocol for the stimulation before egg freezing is the same as that for IVF treatment. It is recommended, but not required that you undergo the pre-treatment tests also prescribed for IVF (please refer to the list in IVF), but you may choose whether to have them done back home or here at the PMI clinic. You will receive the stimulation protocol and be explained the application of the medicaments during the initial consultation with our doctor. You will also need to sign an agreement with the clinic.
The stimulation of your ovaries starts on the 2nd day of your period and lasts approximately 12 days. To determine whether the dosage of medication is optimal for you, you will need to attend an ultrasound scan control on the 5th and 8th day. The egg retrieval will be done under general anesthesia on the 12th day of stimulation, and the harvested eggs are then vitrified.
