IVF Cycle - Follicle count
2 Replies
BabyBaba - March 14

We are going through IVF and are on 300 units of Repronex. I have been taking the medication sub-cutaneously along with 5 units of Lupron. Today is Day 6 of Repronex and Day 16 of Lupron as well as Day 8 since first day of menstural period. This morning, we went for a follicular ultrasound and blood work. The lab reported 4 follicles (1 on right and 3 on left ovary) on the ultrasound and FSH level of 777.

My question is: Do these appear to be normal and would additional follicles develop in the coming few days. As per my protocol, I am supposed to be on Repronex for 4-5 additional days. Your comments are highly appreciated.

You are still early in your stimulation, so you may end up with a reasonable number of follicles. I do not measure FSH during stimulation. Your Repronex contains FSH. I follow estradiol levels as a measure of respomse.
Good luck.

Dear Dr. Jacobs:
Thanks for the note. I went in for Ultrasound and blood work. The nurse reported an increase in the number of follicles as well as other follicles that were developing.
