Is there a chance of twin pregnancy if two follicles are maturing and releasing egg in an IUI cycle?
I am supposed to go for an unmedicated IUI tomorrow and I have one follicle that is 23MM and another that is 12MM as of this morning. The 23MM was 16MM during my last ultrasound on Friday while the 12MM has not grown. My question is if the 12MM could still contain a mature egg and be fertilized. I want to avoid risk of twins, so would rather cancel if there is a higher chance. My Dr thinks it is a leftover follicle and that there is not really a risk. Is that correct?
Less chance of twin pregnancy.
I understand your concerns.
There is possibility of this 12 mm follicle maturing and releasing egg. But still twin pregnancy is unlikely.
Considering your age, let me tell you that success in any IUI cycle is around 10 percent only.
Two follicles would be better to have increased chances of pregnancy in IUI cycle.
Please go ahead with IUI as I don't think there is increased chance of twins.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you need further assistance.
