Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that it is too early to tell about advanced follicle development. As you are probably aware, your FSH and Estradiol levels are sub-optimal for success.  Two other things to consider if you don't conceive this time around--studies being done on DHEA in many locations (seems to improve both ovum quality and reduce genetic abnormalities is the fetus) AND "Natural IVF"--best to Google that --takes advantage of the naturally elevated FSH.
Good luck!
Dr B
