Abstract

Mild ovarian stimulation for in vitro fertilization usually refers to the use of low-dose gonadotropins in conjunction with a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonist whereas minimal stimulation refers to the use of a sequential administration of clomiphene citrate followed by low-dose gonadotropins and a GnRH antagonist. These protocols offer important cost and tolerability advantages to all patients but specifically to high and low responders.
