What causes follicle septation while treating PCOS?
Not dangerous but needs monitoring.
Thanks for sharing your health concern with us.
Septate follicle can be due to a functional cyst or due to a complex cyst. In your case, this is more likely to be functional since you are being treated for infertility.
There is no need to worry, but follow up with repeat sonogram is necessary to see the progress. Spontaneous regression often occurs.
Hope your query has been answered. Please feel free to contact for further information. I will be happy to help.
Septate follicle means follicle got ruptured ah?
Thanks for writing back.
Follicle septation means the follicle contains septa or partitions on the inside. This happens when a cyst is formed. Here, since ovulation did not occur, the resultant follicle seems to have transformed into a cyst with septa.
Cetrorelix is actually prescribed to arrest premature ovulation. Please ask your consultant if another dose if FSH is being planned.
Going by the size of the follicle, it is possible that ovulation did not occur.
Hope this helps.
