  Purpose

The recent controversy regarding the use of pill for cycle planning in GnRH antagonists IVF cycle has driven the search for new ways to plan IVF cycles in order to avoid weekends or to equally distribute the workload. Recently, mid-late luteal phase oral estrogens seem to be as good as the pill. The investigators will compare OCP vs oral estrogens to plan the initiation of IVF cycles.
