The advantages of ovarian stimulation prior to AI, compared to that performed before IVF, are:
- Fewer side effects associated with hormonal treatment.
- Less risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS).
- Less cost associated with medication.
All these advantages are related to the lower amount of gonadotropins required in AI, since only 1-2 follicles are being matured.
