One of the strategies applied when a low ovarian response to stimulation drugs occurs is to modify the protocol. For this purpose, a short protocol using GnRH agonists is usually used. This pharmacological protocol avoids a strong suppression of ovarian activity and takes advantage of the Flare-Up effect, i.e. the release of FSH and LH in combination with the administered hormones.
