Is it true that some women, small % of women ovulate with 15-16mm follicles? If so, are eggs good size to be fertilized? My dr said this is possible.

Is it true that some women, small % of women ovulate with 15-16mm follicles? If so, are eggs good size to be fertilized? My dr said this is possible.

Disbelief?: Do you think the doctor would lie to you? An egg is microscopic. So is the sperm. They cannot be seen with the naked eye. The ovarian follicle size is meaningless.

Parenting: There are years and years ahead of you for becoming a mother. But, I would caution patience when you feel this obsessively about it. You are only 20 years old. Are you partnered? Who is going to help you raise a child? Have you finished your education? Why are you so worried at such a young age about this? It surely appears that you may benefit from some mental health therapy before pregnancy.

On a medicated cycle (250mg of Clomid (clomiphene))i had two follicles 11mm and 12mm are these good size for cd10 and is it poosible to ovulate both eggs?

Yes: Sounds like 2 good maturing eggs on cycle day 10. You may ovulate from both if they are similar. We expect 2mm increase in size per day and ovulation to occur at about 20mm.

Wait and see: It sounds like your fertility treatments are going well. Sometimes spotting occurs. Wait and see if you miss your next period. If so then check a pregnancy test. Hopefully the treatment was successful.

Husband Checked?: It is much easier to verify that your husband's sperm count and motility are normal than for you to undergo further testing such as a hysterosalpingogram. I would suggest that the next step would be for your husband to provide a semen specimen for analysis. 16mm would refer to the size of the ovarian follicle, not the egg. Size would suggest a maturing follicle (normal range about 18-30mm).

Can your eggs ovulate without trigger?

Can your eggs ovulate without trigger?

Often yes: Women with normal cycles ovulate every month without trigger. Women using Clomid (clomiphene) about 80% will ovulate without trigger. Women using injectable fertility drugs and doing ivf almost never will ovulate without trigger. The trigger is used mainly to pinpoint the correct timing in many women.

How long can an egg survive during ovulation ?

How long can an egg survive during ovulation ?

Up to 24 hours: From ivf experience, the egg loses its ability to fertilize 1 day after it is collected from the ovary. In a natural cycle, the woman is fertile for 1 day after she ovulates. To maximize conception, intercourse should occur for 3 consecutive days after the LH surge.

Should you release an egg every time you ovulate?

By definition: Literally, the word ovulation means to release an egg, so 'yes.' if your question refers more to releasing an egg when an ovulation test turns positive, the answer is 'mostly.' it is however possible, although not common, for multiple reasons to detect a positive on opk and not actually release an egg.
