    Default follicles?

    Just wondering how many follicles you had at cd7 scan. I have 18 and am concerned about over stimulating

    I've heard that 20+ is when you should get concerned so you're not quite there yet, but keep an eye out for the symptoms. When is your next ultrasound? Make sure they are closely monitoring it and adjusting your dosage if required. What dosage are you on?

    Talk to you FS. Everyone reacts differently. I have had mild OHSS from 16 follicles at EPU and severe OHSS (requiring drains and hospitalisation) with 26 follies.

    In the meantime keep your fluids up and up the protein in your diet - all helps avoid overstim.

    My next scan is Monday and dr thinks i should be ready for trigger 🤗 . No symptoms apart from the occasional twitch so thats probably a good sign.
    Funny how our bodies react so differently
    Good luck to you all

    They'll check your bloods too. It's more of an overall picture they need rather than just follicle numbers.

    During my 1st cycle I had 38 follicles (16 mature eggs retrieved) and experienced no issues.

    At the moment I have 46 follicles (EPU this Tuesday) and feel much the same as last time.

    @ChristmasCheer What trigger will you take? I had Syneral which is supposed to help avoid OHSS - worked for me.

    I only have 3 follicles and have my final.scan in 2 days. I was disappointed but feel even more disappointed now after hearing how many follicles you all have.
    Can I ask what your amh levels are?

    I know it's hard not to look at other people's numbers and be jealous. But follicules does not equal a baby. Yes it's nice to get big numbers. But I had a friend who had like 35 eggs, and 30 of them turned into blasties. I mean you can't get a better result than that right?? But she used like 8 of them and never got a BFP. She wrote it off as a dud round. She luckily ended up falling pregnant naturally.

    My sister has 15 eggs harvested. One fertilised. That is now my gorgeous nephew.
