I'm a bit baffled after my egg collection this morning (and very upset). Wondering if Diane might have any thoughts on this...
I had my one and only follicle scan on Friday morning and it was looking great, day 9 of stims, and I triggered Saturday night. Friday morning the scan showed left 4 follicles, 26,20,14 and 1<10 and the right had 7 follicles, 21,20,20,19,19 and 2 x <10. I did one more merional Friday night as directed and 1 more cetrotide Saturday morning.
Waking after my 8am collection I was told I only had 2 eggs and due to the discrepancy between Fridays scan and today's retrieval they brought the doctor to me who did the retrieval. She said that I only had 2 follicles on each side to drain and that was it and she can't explain why.
My concern is that late Saturday afternoon I got some pains on my lower right side exactly like when I ovulate and I actually said to my mum and hubby that I was worried I had ovulated. The doc said it's highly unlikely but that she couldn't explain why all those good size follicles were totally gone??
I saw them myself on the screen and the nurse on Friday was an older experienced nurse and she said the follicles looked great.
I'm just at a loss 😢 I know every follicle doesn't necessarily have an egg but I didn't know follicles could vanish when they are 20mm??
