Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic,
I am Dr Ramadevi Wani. I will be answering your concerns today.

When did you get your last period? During each period, one egg starts growing in either ovary. We call this as follicle. Depending on which day of the period ultrasound is done, its size varies. What was the size of the follicle they saw?

I hope it is clear now.
If you have further queries, I will be happy to answer.


Best Wishes,
Dr Rama

Hi,
Probably it was a small size follicle. That is why they did not tell you the size. Do you still have pain?

I was seem in the er the doctor referred me to a gynecologist. The pain is decreasing. I'm afraid that I wouldn't be able to have kids. Do you think I have PCOS? Also what does it mean if my follicles are small?

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Happy to know that the pain is decreasing. The follicles are small if the ultrasound is done close to your period bleeding time and this is normal. It does not mean that you have PCOS.
It does not mean that you cannot have kids. So relax.

Best wishes,
Dr Rama

Detailed Answer:
Hi
It could be just ovulation pain ( if this is your ovulation period). It could be intestinal colic also since the pain has reduced without treatment.

If you have regular cycles of 28 days, then ovulation occurs on 14/15th day of cycle.

Brief Answer:
Details below.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

You need to count from first day of your period bleeding to the first day of period bleeding in the following month. This will give you the duration of your period cycle.

I hope this is clear.
If you have further concerns, I will be happy to answer.

Dr Rama
