Guideline on Ovarian Stimulation for IVF/ICSI

ovstimThe aim of this guideline is to provide clinicians with evidence-based information on the different options for ovarian stimulation for IVF/ICSI, taking into account issues such as the ‘optimal’ ovarian response, live birth rates, safety, patient compliance, and individualisation. In this guideline, special attention has also been given to pre- and adjuvant treatments in poor responders and the prevention of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) in high responders.

The guideline provides recommendations on all steps of ovarian stimulation: pre-stimulation management, LH suppression and gonadotropin stimulation, monitoring during ovarian stimulation, triggering of final oocyte maturation and luteal support and the prevention of OHSS.
