Gonal-F question

Im 26 years old going through treatments for infertility.  What size should the follicles be before they recommend taking ovidrel.  I can't find any real standard and when I ask the nurse they don't seem so confident in their answer like they are just guessing.  This is my 3rd cycle and the dr who did my ultrasound at least smiled today and didn't give me the pity look so  I was hoping you could help lead me in the right direction.  Thanks

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would want to see follicles about 2 cm (1 in) in size.
That is the ideal size for mature follicles.  I have personally seen that look.
Maybe the smile meant something--don't be afraid to ask the doctor too!
Good luck!
Dr B
