I am traveling to Israel this summer to start IVF. When during my cycle would they start me on Hormone Treatments?

Depends on the protocol. For a medical tourism cycle, they might use a short protocol to reduce your time spent there. With that protocol, the injections start on or about day 1 of your cycle.

They might try a long protocol. It's the most common protocol, but it takes longer. With that protocol, the injections of a GnRH agonist (Leuprolide, Triptorelin, or Buserelin) start about a week earlier, in the luteal phase of your prior cycle.
Note: I am not an MD and not an expert.
