Brief Answer:
The chances are quite low.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for writing to us about it.

I can understand your concern, though.

I have worked through your follicular studies and the size of the follicle is low.

The follicular size should be approximately 17-27 mm for fertilization or at least more than 15 mm but in your case it is less than that.

So chances of pregnancy in this cycle are quite low, but it does not imply that you will not get pregnant in your next cycle.

The chances of pregnancy stand at only 26% in one cycle. So please do not stress yourself out too much. Attempt again later, you are so young, your chances will improve with attempts.

You should consume a healthy and balanced diet, do some yoga, maintain your weight, have sex during your most fertile periods and start taking folic acid tablet and do not take stress.

You can confer with a gynecologist and took treatment to increase your follicle size.

Hope it is useful, feel free to ask more.

Good luck.
Regards
