I'm new to the community and started my stims on Sunday. I had my first ultrasound today, which only showed 7 follicles - 5 in one ovary (of varying sizes) and 2 in the other. To say I'm devastated is an understatement. They are hoping that they are all the same size on Monday. Has anyone experienced something similar with low follicle numbers? What did you do? Did you proceed with the transfer?
Thanks to both of you and your continued words of support and encouragement. Sorry I've not responded sooner, but last week was a busy/emotional week. Based upon the bloodwork, my doctor felt that there was probably only 1-2 eggs in the follicles, so DH and I decided to switch to an IUI cycle this month. It was my first round of shots and I wanted to see if perhaps another round would increase the number of follicles, that is if the IUI doesn't work first. View Thread
Thanks for replying and congratulations on your twins. That's wonderful and comforting to hear on this side of IVF.
It looks like we're going to take the leap and move forward, despite not having great follicle numbers, as the dr doesn't think we'd get many more if we let this cyclel pass and start another. So here's hoping most of my follicles make it all the way!
