Hi there

Generally day 21 or 23 sometimes a little bit later depending on the length of your cycle. As I recall you can down reg for anything from 20 days upwards (though for some its shorter and for some a lot longer). Once you've had your bleed then your scan to make sure lining is nice and thin, your body is being completely controlled by the buserilin. The clnic can (in theory) keep you on that for as long as they need to. You wold however usually start stimms within about 3-4 weeks of down reg commencing.
