Abstract

Minimal stimulation or mild stimulation protocols for in vitro fertilization offer many advantages for all patients, but especially for low and high responders. In the current practice of reducing the number of embryos transfered to a maximum of two for a significant number of patients, using aggressive and high-dose gonadotropins to obtain a large, and sometimes excessive, number of oocytes should be questioned.
