Abstract This report reviews and discusses the existing evidence on recommended FSH doses in IVF cycles. A comprehensive search for relevant data was performed in the Cochrane Library, MEDLINE, EMBASE and NICE clinical guidelines database, and the reference lists of manuscripts. A good body of evidence exists looking at starting doses of FSH for first IVF attempts. Only one randomised controlled trial was identified looking at the efficacy of increasing doses during an IVF cycle. Some observational studies dealt with the question whether a suboptimal ovarian response should be managed by an increased FSH dose in a subsequent cycle, but no randomised trials addressed this issue.
