What should follicle size be for IVF? I have 12 follies. Sizes range from 17, 16, 15 and 14. The dr is having me trigger tonight for egg retrieval on sat. Is this ok? i thought follies should be in the 20mm range? Am I worried for nothing? I know i have to get better at just trusting my dr but being such a control freak at times, it's hard.
The trigger gives the final push to mature so you should be OK. My follies were your size yesterday and they delayed my retrieval one day to Saturday. I have to say though I am pretty sure they delayed it more for them than me - I heard today they have a ton of retrievals tomorrow and since I had tons of eggs my bet is that they thought I'd still have plenty of mature ones if we waited one more day. They didn't say that but I have a strong feeling!! Best of luck - we're going through this together!!!!!!
My dr. told me that they trigger when about 3 follicles reach the size of 18 mm and rest are close behind. I had two at 18 mm when I triggered and ended up with 30 mature eggs! Remember that they'll still grow between trigger and retrieval - about 1-2 mm per day. Best of luck :)
