    Default Follicle Size - BFP?

    Could any of you please share what your largest follicle size was on your BFP cycle, I just had my IUI today, and on friday morning my largest follicle was a 16, followed by a 14 and some 12's.... I had 1 more dose of Gonal F after that , and then at 11pm that night I had my trigger.... has anyone had a bfp with a follie that size? I could really use some hope right now.

    Yours sound like mine. I had a 16-17mm and a couple of smaller ones around 14-15mm, and I triggered the next morning. Usually they grow up to 2mm a day, so your 16 might have been around 18-19mm. Anyhow, I am currently pregnant with twins, LOL. They don't have to be huge. I think they like them at least a 17mm before triggering, or at least that's what my RE told me. Good luck!!

    On injectable cycles, anything over 16mm is typically considered mature. Also, keep in mind that follies grow 1-2mm a day.

    My third BFP (used Bravelle) I had one 17mm and two 16mm ones at trigger. This last cycle (used Gonal-F/Follistim) my biggest was 20mm, but I also had a 17 and like four or five 16mm ones (if I had been almost anyone else they would have canceled my last cycle for overstimming, but given my history they felt safe enough going ahead with the cycle).

    I agree with pps, the follicles can def grow 1-2mm in two days, therefore your 16 may have triggered at 17 or 18 which is fine! I had SEVERAL follies, they almost cancelled my cycle. My biggest ones measured at 18 two days before my IUI, and the smallest at 15. I only have one baby in there(so far) so who knows which eggie was caught! Good luck to you, happy tww!

    My follicles were SMALL--16-20 range. I had my ivf, and i got a very good fertility rate. I only had 1 20 mm follicle when they harvested my eggs, and i have twins right now, so at least one had to come from something smaller

    agreed. so by the time u actually ovulated they were probably 17-18mm. Anyways.... When i gave myself my trigger shot (i was also on Gonal F) my follies were at 2 @ 16mm and 2 @ 15mm so by the time i actually ovulated.. probably between 16 and 18mm.. i had 4 mature follicles and got pregnant with triplets.

    GOOD LUCK!!! keep us posted.

    Thanks Girl! I needed to hear that it wasn't a lost cause already... Other then my follicle size everything else was stellar.... For once I had a lining of 12.5 (in the past it's never been above six) and DH's swimmer were 57Mil with 55% motility which is awesome for him... so I really couldn't have had a more perfect cycle otherwise.

    Oh I love this thread! I just found out I have a 20,23 and 16 and will be triggering tonight. I had 2 20's last month and no BFP so maybe this little guy will be the one. Good luck gemini and jesslynn07. 17 is considered mature and after you trigger it will get a little bigger so

    I just checked my FF chart for my BFP and I had 1 follicle and it was 19.5mm the day of trigger. I did not do anymore follistim after the 19.5mm ultrasound.
