    Uhm... hmmm...

    Ok, I'm just posting what I know, and I don't know if it's helpful or not!

    The follicle of 15x18 is a good size... After O, they should see where the follicle has gone missing and there should be fluid around the ovary... the fluid that leaked out of the follicular cyst when it burst open to release the egg!

    So, I would say that the smaller size might have been (I am SO guessing) that maybe the fluid has started to leak out in preparation for the bursting and release? So, the endo would be thicker to accommodate the hopefully fertilized emby! I don't know, hun! I wish I had a real answer. It makes sense in my head though!

    Good luck! :hugs:

    Yay! Let me know if I might have been right! I like to take guesses at medical stuff, and I usually have it figured out. But, I definitely want to know if they have a different answer! The more you know! :)
