    well my RE says i have poor ovarian reserve. Im 39 and my highest fsh was 11.5 this is ivf #2 , last time i had about 4 follies measuring the biggest 16 and the smallest 11. so since that didnt work my RE told me that i probably has some old eggs in there since, this time i have only 1 have 1 follie size 21 with e2 levels 247. i just triggered at 9pm with retreval on thurs am. i was just wondering if anyone else has gotten pregnant with only 1 follie..
    i actually am pretty excited this time and dont want to get disappointed again. its been 2 yrs my husband and i have been trying for a wonderful bundle of joy.
    thanks for any input!!

    Didn't want to read and run. We had our 2nd round of treatment last year and now have a beautiful baby boy after ttc for 10 years. I just wanted to offer you some encouragement as I know what you are going through and wish you good luck

    Hi Boots, I know exactly what you are going through-I am also 39 and had my first attempt at IVF in feb which was cancelled as I had just one follie.
    Am in middle of second cycle now with different protocol and have scan tomorrow to find out how many follies I have this time-am terrified as don't feel too much going on in my ovaries but will see.

    I think they will just do IUI if I have less than 3 but if I have 3, i am going to push to go through with IVF-so will have to wait and see.

    Best of luck with EC and fertilisation-I hope it works for you!

    It only takes one! I produced more than one last cycle (4), but 3 of which were on the right, which is my blocked tube, and only one on my left. And now I am 4 weeks, 5 days pregnant. So, keep up the positive vibes because it can happen with just one! Best of luck to you.
