To make it more convenient and less stressful for you, we use a short stimulation cycle.  This means you will only need about 8 to 9 days of hormonal injections to achieve good egg numbers and maturity before the egg collection. So your cycle will only take approximately 2 weeks from the day your period starts to the day of embryo transfer. Most of Europe and Australia use this modern way of stimulation as it is much easier on the woman and has less hormonal side effects and risks of ovarian hyperstimulation.
