How can this even happen? On CD 14 I had my scan which showed a 19mm follie and a 11mm follie. The OB said that this was great and I should Ov in the next few days so BD like mad. Well CD 19 has come around and still no Ov. How is this even possible, what happens to those follies, wouldn't they just get bigger and bigger untill they release? If not what happens to them?
So counfused and frustrated to be given false hope and encouragement and then waiting waiting....nothing.
How do you know you haven't ovulated yet? Did they do another scan?
Typically the doctor will give a HCG trigger shot once follicles reach a certain size (>16mm), which forces ovulation within 36 hours. That helps narrow down the window. I'd request that for your next cycle.
The last time I ovulated I didn't ovulate until after my mature follicle was 26mm in size. Follicles can grow 1-2mm a day so if yours is growing 1mm a day it would be at 24 right now. When my follicle was 26mm I didn't have an LH surge I had to get a HCG trigger needle for it to release. Also, if you have PCOS it could take longer for your follicles to grow. Keep having sex because that follicle will be releasing an egg any time now. Are you going in for another scan? Have you been using OPK's? How do you know you haven't ovulated yet.
I know because of my chart and OPK. No other scan just a blood test tomorrow.
That is good to know you OVed late frustrated20 and that your follies were 26mm when you oved.
I have asked for a trigger shot with my next round.
I am afraid sex is becoming a bit of an issue with the hubby. He says it's too much of a routine. We have had some difficulty over the past year or so with my vulvodynia, we had to to "pelvic floor stretches" before sex for a long time which really took the fun out of it. We have gone straight from that to being ok to trying for a baby so he doesn't enjoy the routine aspect at all.
