I went 14 th day she said it has ruptured, free fluid was there no enlarged follicle ovulation was possitive and she prescribed progesteron for 15 days.

Hi XXXXXX thanks for your query. I read your query. I understand your concerns.

There is no significance of 'No enlarged follicle' for you to know about it. The term is slightly misleading. Actually it is temporary condition because of hormonal fluctuations in the body and you would not find them during the next scan. Forget about it.

You had a follicle on day 10 and it ruptured on day 14 . It means that follicle became dominant in this duration and ruptured. If you had intercourse around 13 to 15th day of your cycle, you have good chance of conceiving. Hence I suggest you continue with progesterone & metformin tablets which will give you advantage in case if you conceive.

You keep hopes. All the best

You don't need any specific precautions.

Just avoid lifting heavy weight and straining a lot. Be stress free.

All the best!!
