Recent approaches in IVF are trending towards more physiological and patient friendly stimulation cycles, with reduction in cost and stress associated with ovarian stimulation. Delaying onset of stimulation from day 2 to day 5 in a GnRH antagonist protocol is a novel approach which helps maintain a more physiological hormonal milieu. The present review compares the follicular growth patterns and endocrine profiles in women undergoing delayed onset versus the conventional day 2 start of ovarian stimulation.
