I have 1 follicle

Hey Everyone,

Just back from the scan and my right ovary has 1 follicle. I feel a little upset. I'm not sure if 1 follicle is good or bad. The nurse said 3 would have been ideal. I've taken clinic 50mg for 5 days and all the hormone injections. I thought I would have produced more. So does that mean if I hadn't taken the drugs there would have been no follicles?

The good news is my IUI treatment will go ahead and is schedule for 12 tomorrow.

I feel upset but excited. I need some hope. I'm hiding up the stairs about to cry. X

  • Hiya, 1 follicle is absolutely normal and fine.. bare in mind with IUI if you have any more than 2 viable follicles they won't treat you! (Potential for triplets) ive recently had 2 iui xx

  • Great to hear from you. Thanks. I just keep thinking the more the better. How have you found your cycles. The nurse had said the 1st is the worst. Does the 2nd get better? Xx

  • The more the better is what you need for IVF but for IUI what youve got is perfect :) in my opinion the 1st procedure is only worse because you dont no what to expect. The pain for me was no worse than period pain and it was all over very quickl. Feel free to message me if you want to chat :) xx
