I need some input on follicle growth. I had an u/s today and my follicles are between 9 and 13 mm., 9,10,10,11,12,13.
We are doing IVF abroad and my dh flight arrives on saturday late afternoon, and these were the result on Monday 10am. The tentative ER is Sunday morning, but plus minus 1 day is real possibility. Our dr suggested to change dh's flight to arrive one day earlier, but it would cost 1200. I do not know what to do. That is a lot of money and I am not sure how real is the possibility to actually need him here one day earlier.
Any input on how fast did you get from this size to ER would be a big help, especially if you used the same meds

Ope - I was on Puregon and Repronex. I was told (I think someone on this site) that hey grow 1-2 mm per day, but I had some that grew 3-4 mm after 1-2 days. I also had 2 18 mm follies that didn't change after 1 day and I thought for sure they would have grown. I guess it all depends on the person and what drugs they're on. Does your clinic think that you may trigger before DH gets there? I hope it all works out. You don't need to be worrying about that on top of everything else. Good luck :)

Ope, my follicles grew much faster on Puregon + Menopur vs just Puregon. What medication are you using for suppression? It is quite possible that you will need only 8 or 9 days of stimming unless they up the suppression dose or lower the menopur..
