I am doing a (very) low-stim IVF cycle at Co.oper (I've only been taking Gonal-F (75) since this past Saturday and Lupron (15iu) since last Thursday. No other stims).
On CD10, I had:
RT: 17, 11
LT: 13.5, 15, 16, 17.5
My E2 was 1,435 LH= 8.7 FSH=8.6 P=0.6
The nurse had told me then that Dr. Ch.eck thinks it's too early to trigger and wants to give some of the smaller ones a chance to catch up. So I continued taking the Gonal-F and Lupron for 2 more nights.
Today (CD12), my ultrasound showed 5 follies, with 4 of them measuring above 20mm (the other is a 12mm). I don't remember all the measurements, but the biggest was on my RT. The tech first measured it at 22x19, but then measured it again and said- no, it's really 22x27 (I'm assuming this is the 17mm follie from two days ago- could it have grown so much in 2 days??). If it really is measuring 22x27, that is the biggest one (I guess 24.5mm). The other 3 were around 21-23mm.
I am nervous that all these big ones will get "overcooked" and not make it. I'm assuming they will tell me to trigger tonight for ER on Sunday - but I'm so scared that it will be too late. Uch, I hope I don't cancelled again
Any Ch.eck patients that have experience with this? At what size does Dr. Ch.eck consider a follie to be over-mature?
I had a similiar situation in February where I had a 23mm at trigger and it was 26mm the morning of the ER. The egg ended up being dead at retrieval.
I was nervous at my last ER in June of overcooking the egg again. I triggered at 21mm and itw as 23mm morning of ER. That egg was alive.
It's hard to say how yours will be but in my opinion, they should have checked you yesterday and not let you go 2 days with a 17mm.
I hope it works out for you.
