If you are doing IUI or trying naturally then 2 is pretty good.  And they are about the same size which is a good sign.

My re would only proceed with ivf if there are 5 or more follies.  If you still have only 2 next scan your re can convert it to IUI.  You should not spend $$ on retrieval and transfer plus embryology lab if you only have a 2-3 follies to work with.  Note that a change in protocol can improve your response.

I am so sorry this is all so stressful and expensive!

I agree with Helen72... you do not have 'alot of eggs' if you only have two follicles on each side. And you are already on day 6 of meds? I do not think your RE should do an egg retrieval, and send the eggs to a lab if you only have 4 forming but I guess let's see what he or she says. They can convert it to an IUI rather than waste your money on a retrieval and so on.

Hi I'm new to this thread.  I hope your u/s went well today.  I think, if you still have meds to take, it's not too late. They can still develop.

I had my 1st u/s since baseline today.  RE saw growth in 3 eggs.  He counted 15 follicles during baseline u/s. He upped my dosage to 4 vials of bravelle from 3.     Tonight I will have my day 5 meds, including 4 vials of bravelle/ 1 vial of menopur.  

Don't get discouraged.
