What does 24mm follicle indicate? - Online Doctor Chats
Dr XXXXXXX here
Hi I have a question
I recd a positive opk on cd13
I went in on cd14 she gave me a trigger shot
She said it's needed to rupture or it's not good for me next month
So is it too late for the trigger?
Will I still stand a chance this month?
No, day 14th is very much ideal; fr the trigger shot
also the size of the follicle is favorable
Ok so do I bed tonight?
Do I still have chance for pg this month?
Was the bleeding heavy, as a usual period or just spotting ?
Also is it possible that the follicle contain no egg?
I have no bleeding
Every mature follicle does contain an egg. Sometimes eggs may be defective which may disintegrate soon after rupture of the follicle
Why is it defective?
Since it was mature enough and of good size , trigger shot would have surely worked
It would be fruitful if you bed tonight and next two days
Ok so I still stand a chance this month?
I feel no side effect from the shot
Is it normal?
rarely the DNA material of the egg may be damaged in such cases the egg may get disintegrated. Need not worry its a rare entity
Yes, it is normal. You may not experience side effect of the shot
But no side effect is that normal?
I heard people said they get pg symptoms
also you do have chance this month
But I feel nothing
Thanks a lot!
No, not always clinical effects can be experienced by one who took the shot
Once you have a trigger shot do you have to get it every month?
Its only for a single cycle\
I'm surprise she said it's not good if it doesn't rupture
If for the next cycle another shot may have to be given once the follicle is mature
Every follicle after maturity does rupture for sure
is that correct? She said it needed or if will affect my next cucle
only the life of the egg is decided by its health
No, if there is a delay in rupture it may delay the periods
no other problems would be faced
O she said it would do the same again next cycle if it doesn't rupture this cycle
An extra of 15 minutes is given for your chat time as we faced a technical error
You can login back for the same \
after this chat closes
So will the shot for sure rupture my follicle?
it will occur naturally otherwise
sometimes it may get delayed by 3 to 7 days
Ok thanks she said 24 was too big
It should have already
not at al
24 is optimum
if it's delayed still a healthy egg?
ok she also put me on clomid 50 next cycle
And said to test opk starting cd9
Its fine, you can take the same for better results
If cd12 does not show opk positive then go back in
that's ok too, you can take test as advised
I'm not sure why clomid if already ovulating
i too believe the same
24 mm by 13th day is a healthy ovulation sign
but it's not rupture yet
And I went in on cd14
Still not so she triggered it
No issues, as I said there can be a delay upto 7 days and still the egg can be healthy
She said that's probably why I'm not pg bc my egg never rupture
Only in certain cases where there is defective genetic profile of the eggs such undeu delay can occur and can lead to no egg status
How do you ck if you have that case?
I would say such occurrences is seen in women with very irregular cycles
Ok I have regular cycle
if you have regular cycles, it itself indicated you have healthy maturation and ovulation
I'm not sure what's keeping me from getting pg
You may have to be evaluated well
How do you find out if ur egg is defective?
Chromosomal analysis of the germ cells from the ovary
would help to identify DNA defects
Sound so comicayex
need not worry,
With regular periods i do not suspect any problem with your ovualtion
Will that defect my eggs?
im not sure if it was that making me infertile
Why was acutane advised ?
what do you mean?
It was to help with acnes
I'm not sure if it's that was the readin
Though there are no side effects of accutane on fertility. I would still consider not taking it now would be a better option
I stopped already
but I took it before I TTC
So it's not going to hurt anything genetically?
Ok, i do not think that would be the cause for your fertility issues
Ok great thanks for ur help!
