What is an ovarian follicle? Is it something I should be worried about? Can it grow in size? Life threatening for me& my unborn baby?

No worries!: None of the above. A follicle (or follicle cyst) is a normal part of a woman's ovary in her reproductive years: follicles are where her oocytes(eggs) are. Follicle(s) grow as the egg(s) come closer to ovulation. ...Read more

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

How to mature ovarian follicles naturally?

I assume: That you are trying to resolve poly cystic ovaries, then ovulate naturally? The only hope is diet and excercise for weight loss. That may work. Metformin at 1500 mg will help 30% of those with cystic ovaries to ovulate by reducing insulin. In some people, by reducing insulin, it can help w/ wt loss. Medicine was developed to prevent the downside of nature. Just as clothes or living in a house. ...Read more

3 ovarian follicles ultrasound, triplets?

Very unlikely: Though not impossible. If you got 3 follicles on Clomid (clomiphene) your chance of triplets is roughly 1/1000; if on hmg (shots) the chance may be as high as 5%. You list 47 years as your age; if this is true, the chance is (i'm sorry) basically zero. ...Read more

What is the difference between a ovarian follicle and an ovarian cyst. And how can you tell the difference?

What is the difference between a ovarian follicle and an ovarian cyst. And how can you tell the difference?

Can be the same: A developing ovarian follicle is actually cystic, so all follicles are cysts, but not all cysts are follicles. Most follicles are small so the biggest differentiating factor is size and consistency. If a cyst is large (>7cm) or causing pain it needs to be further evaluated ...Read more

Would a myoectomy be indicated for a 3.7 cm submucosal fibroid? I also have bilateral hemorrhagic ovarian follicles.

Depends: If you are having symptoms from the fibroid then a myomectomy may relieve the symptoms. If you are not having symptoms and especially if you are close to menopause then a myomectomy may not be needed. ...Read more

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

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

Likely nothing: It is common for a woman to get small cysts on the ovaries that come and go. A 3.1 cm ovarian cyst is most likely a follicular cyst, or a follicle, which is simply a cyst that is holding an egg as a woman gets ready to ovulate - or release - the egg. These cysts go away on their own in 2 weeks to 2 months. There is nothing for you to worry about. ...Read more

Likely normal: Sounds like you have been reading an ultrasound report? Follicles are normal ovarian cysts, where eggs live. The word scattered means what you'd expect, and usually describes a normal ovarian finding. ...Read more
