I have 3.1cm hypo echoic lesion cysts. ...The ER repoert said left ovarian follicle. Iam so scared what this can be now.

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.

Thus all necessary, yet separate & sequential steps. ...Read more
