Can a 16mm follicle have a mature egg?
Overall, follicles of 16–22 mm on the day of oocyte retrieval are more likely to contain mature oocytes than smaller follicles, while larger follicles are more likely to contain post-mature oocytes (1).
Can a 16mm follicle have a mature egg for IUI?
Yes, you might get three mature eggs, but all the follicles that are less than 16 mms will be immature. With an intra uterine insemination as opposed to in vitro fertilization, the picture is different. If the follicle does not reach 18-20 mms, it is unlikely that the follicle will ovulate despite HCG (Ovidrel).
Can a 15mm follicle be mature?
While all the growing follicles may release an egg, the egg needs to be mature to be able to fertilise. Generally, doctors want the follicles to be around 18mm or more to be considered mature, but I found this varied depending on the doctor.
What if I only have 3 follicles?
Sometimes, there are too few follicles for IVF but still too many for IUI. Undergoing IUI when you have three to five follicles means that you are at risk of having multiples, and carrying multiples increases health risks to you and your babies.
Will a 15mm follicle ovulate?
The follicle needs to reach maturity size of 18-20 mm. Follicles below 18mm generally do notovulate or release the egg. However, if a transvaginal aspiraion of such a follicle, ie under 18mm, is performed, quite often an egg can be obtained in this manner.
Can a 14mm follicle release an eggs?
Keep in mind that we will always empty every follicle that is over 10 mm, but generally only those follicles that are over 15-25 mm at FCI have a >80% chance to even produce an egg. Smaller follicles 10-14 mm usually do not give us an egg, and if they do, the egg is most often immature.
Can a 14mm follicle releases an egg?
What is the maximum follicle size to get pregnant?
When your follicles have reached around 18-20mm in diameter they are deemed ready for egg collection. You’ll be given a hormone trigger injection to stimulate your follicles to release the mature eggs that have been prepared in your follicles.
Is 3 follicles good for IUI?
Conclusions: Multifollicular growth is associated with increased pregnancy rates in IUI with COH. Since in cycles with three or four follicles the multiple pregnancy rate increased without substantial gain in overall pregnancy rate, IUI with COH should not aim for more than two follicles.
Can you still get pregnant with 3 follicles?
In women over the age of 40, up to 3 follicles nearly doubled the likelihood of pregnancy while maintaining an 11% risk of multiple gestation per pregnancy.
What is the best size of follicle to conceive?
