    Default how big your follicles have to grow before egg pickup?

    am curious how many days into your cycle, or how big the follicles meant to grow before egg pickup? (mm)
    had my Day 7 scan today just want to know how many more days roughly before epu.

    It depends a little on your protocol and your FS as they may have their own style/preferences.

    Generally though they trigger you once the lead follicle is 18mm+.

    As a guide, any follicle over 15mm may contain a mature egg (but remember sometimes follicles can also be empty).

    As an example:
    1st cycle - 7 follicles over 15mm, 7 eggs, 6 mature.
    2nd cycle - 8 follicles over 15mm, 6 eggs, 4 mature.

    Follicles over about 24mm risk being overcooked. So your FS will be aiming to get as many follicles in the 16-22mm range.

    Best of luck xx
