Hi , 

 

My clinic refuses allow me to start a protocol for DE IVF (lupron shot followed by estradiol protocol) because I have a resdiual 11 mm follicle /cyst in the ovary found two weeks ago on ultrasound. Can anyone help me understand, is this really a problem, or the clinic just does not want to treat me? I paid the deposit and the clinic is in Cancun, so I am terribly stressed about their demands to do another ultrasound after 2 weeks that an 11 mm follicle was found. I feel like they will just come up with something else after another ultrasound.

That is interesting, I never heard of this. I'm wondering why wouldn't they explain it to you.

I would assume that a residual follicle can mess with your hormone levels which would risk the cycle and limit the success rate.
