STAGE 2: HORMONAL PREPARATION

A fertility treatment begins with a hormone treatment of the woman in order to stimulate the development of egg cells.
The patient starts this treatment at home by following the scheme that she received from her treating doctor during the first 6 days.

From day 7 onwards, she needs to undergo regular blood tests and ultrasound scans during one week. She will be closely followed up by her own treating doctor until the follicles reach optimum size for a follicular puncture to be performed.
