Today day 15 report shows follicle ruptured &right ovarian follicle nill and left ovarian follicle 24 * 26 mm and 19 * 20 mm. Chances of pregnant?

Follicles Not Zygote: Quite different issues. While a follicle must develop, release egg, egg must enter Fallopian tube, be fertilized by sperm to form a zygote & zygote must implant in uterine lining by ~day 6 to stimulate placenta, potentially allowing further development, many early stages (? 1/3 or more) still do not reach delivery of healthy child. Thus all necessary, yet separate & sequential steps. ...Read more
