Hello!

 

I just completed 11 days of stims (150IU of Menopur & 20units Suprefact) during all of my monitoring appointments I had 35+ follies. By day 10 I had 13 that were mature ranging between 15-22 and the rest (approx 15)  around or under 10.  I pulled the trigger (7500IU HCG) 36 hours before retrieval. At retrieval, there were only 3 mature follies and approx 15 under 10.  What happened to my other follies between my last monitoring appointment to retrieval? Its not that they were there and didn't contain an egg, they just weren't there anymore.  My doctor even said during the procedure it didn't add up.

That has happened to me too.  My RE said that sometimes the body just reabsorbs them, and that it's not that unusual.  It's certainly disheartening though.  FX that you get a winner out of the 3 that were retrieved!

No experience here but could you have ovulated?  Seems really weird to me.

 

So sorry that this happened but hope that with the 3 retrieved, you will have success!

I'm sorry to hear about your situation

It is difficult to say what caused this without knowing all the pertinent details in your ultrasounds and bloodwork and the retrieval. Ovulation is certainly possible, if a lot of free fluid was seen then that should be considered. It is possible that there was an issue with the previous ultrasounds, although this was less likely.

Best to discuss with your RE when you meet again as to what may have happened.

Good luck with everything and hopefully despite this stumble you will be successful this cycle!

I lost 2 cycles (sadly my 2 best) due to ovulation before retrieval -- it's not very common, but some people will ovulate without taking antagonist on trigger day.
