What you need to do before your treatment starts:

Long Agonist Protocol

1. Stop smoking if you are a smoker.

2. Start using Folic acid pills 0.4 mg/day.

3. We will perform an ultrasound examination and start stimulating your ovaries when you come to Istanbul. Treatment may be initiated any time within the first 3 days of your menstrual bleeding.

Short Antagonist Protocol

1. Stop smoking if you are a smoker.

2. Start using Folic acid pills 0.4 mg/day.

3. Come to the clinic directly on the second or third day of your cycle.

4. We will perform an ultrasound examination and start stimulating your ovaries when you come to Istanbul. Treatment may be initiated if certain conditions are met such as the absence of cysts and the presence of a thin endometrium.

5. In women planned to be treated with the antagonist protocol there is a 10-15% risk of not being able to initiate the treatment due to the presence of functional ovarian cysts or a early growing follicle that will suppress the stimulation of other follicles.
