Mature Follicle Size At Ovulation

Possibly: Sometimes things may not work right and the egg might be released too early. If so, implantation is not likely as the endometrial lining may not be ready. This would not be common, though. Usually ovulation occurs after the LH surge, when the time and the conditions are right. ...Read more

Small: The follicle usually reaches 18 to 20 mm when it is ready to ovulate. In the days preceding ovulation, follicles usually grow approximately 1 mm per day. Based on your number, I would guess you will be ovulating in 5 to 6 days, but this is just a guess, and it may be that you won't ovulate at all this cycle. Unfortunately it's hard to tell in advance what will happen. Would luck! ...Read more

Good luck. ...Read more

How much days does a mature follicle needs to rupture on its own without any shots? (there is not any problems on ovulation and all tests is good)
Its Estrogen Levels: The trigger of ovulation happens when the estrogen level reaches approximately 250pg/ml. This triggers the pituitary to release lh which causes ovulation. The follicle usually produces that level of estrogen on day 12 of the cycle. However, medications that stimulate more than one follicle can reach this level earlier. ...Read more
