Not all women need to take the oral contraceptive pill prior to stimming. There would be a group of women who have very irregular cycles. For example, women with low ovarian reserve or women with polycystic ovaries.

And we can use a short course of the oral contraceptive pill to ensure that we can facilitate the timing of the start of the cycle.
