Follicles question

Hi all, I had my day 6 scan from the date of starting menopur. The nurse said they was about 10 follicles all measuring under 10mm apart from one that was 11mm. She said " my body is acting older than I am". That was a bit scary. The nurse has tripled my dosage of menopur and I have another scan this friday, hopefully they would have increased in size . .anybody else been in a similar situation??, any advice would be appreciated !!

Hi ditsy999 I had the same at my first scan - only had 10 follicles. They didn't increase my meds but kept me stimming for two weeks. I have had my egg collection today and although I had 24 follicles at the last scan not all were big enough. I'm really happy though as we got 8 eggs from the collection and now we just have to wait and see how they get on overnight xxx

They are apparently meant to grow 2mm a day. Try hugging a water bottle tonight, as warmth is meant to help at stimming stage X

Hi Diane,

I've just had the scan and they were about 10 follicles measuring 12.4, 14, 15. I have another scan on Monday, so hopefully will know more Monday. Does a hot water bottle help whilst stimming? Also is there anything else that can help?

Hi ditsy999. All good numbers which I feel sure will be on the increase over the weekend. I think you must be doing everything you can looking at your current results. I have heard about a hot water bottle can sometimes help. good luck! Diane
