Hello

I am new to this

I am 37, hubby 39

started my injectables 3 days ago , went in today for follicle US

had 5 follicles on right, 6 on left..measuring beween 7-11 mm

I go back again for another US in 2 days

I'm scared. does this mean at most I can get 11 eggs? sounds low to me

can more follicles appear as time goes on? or do they just grow in size.

would love to hear how many others had at day 3 of stimulation meds..

thanks in advance

 

 

so nervous... :(

11 eggs is pretty average for your age. Some women get 20 but its not uncommon to get 5.

My Fertility doctor said more doesnt mean better. It is the quality of eggs and not the number of eggs. They have to be mature enough to undergo fertilization. I was freaking out with 5 follicles. But 4 was mature enough and all fertilized and developed. I am now a mom and have 3 frozen embryos. Plan to have a second baby this year using a frozen one.

Remember, you just need one to work.

I agree with precious baby ... its truly quality and not quantity. Your numbers sound on track. If it makes you feel better my first fresh cycle resulted in 17 eggs, 5 embryos and bfns and miscarriage. My second fresh cycle at 37 resulted in only 5 eggs, 5 embryos and 3 children so far with my last 2 embryos on ice. Lower numbers can result in just as much success. It does only take one.
