Follicles not growing, why?
I had my 2nd scan this morning and after 4 days of Bemfola & menopur, my 2 follicles haven’t responded & grown. My menopur is now being upped to 3 powders/tablets. Anyone else had similar experience and what was your outcome?
Yep – I had the same thing with five rounds of OI (Ovulation Induction) and one successful round of IVF. My follicles tend to do nothing for the first few days of treatment – so then they increase my dose and BAM: the follicles go nuts!
When I started IVF, my notes stated that my ovaries had a propensity to go crazy like that – and not to increase the menopur too much as a result (because of the risk of OHSS). They increased my dose quite a lot anyway, and I ended up with 41 eggs (18 frozen embryos)! I also had moderate/severe OHSS, so it definitely wasn't all good times!
I'm no doctor, but my own experiences suggest that there's no need to worry about lack of follicle growth just yet.
41 eggs, holey moley! I’ve never quite figured out what OHSS stands for? Can you enlighten me? Fingers crossed my follicles go nuts 🤞🥜 Thanks for your reassurance. I’d be lost without this forum. Hope all is well with you? Xx
Sorry for the late reply! Here's more info about OHSS: theduff.co.uk/ovarian-hyper...
Oh good luck maybe also try a hot water bottle? X
I love hot water bottles! I go to be with one pretty much every night, even in this nice weather! Xx
dosage of Menopur and still today there was no growth in my follicles. I have 30+follicles on each ovary...
Hello! I had a scan today and was hoping for egg collection on Thursday but my follicles are still growing...
Evening all... so we had another scan today and follicles are growing nicely (14 are between 13-15m)...
