thank you for your query.
Normally, any injection for ovulation trigger is given when the follicle size is atleast 20 mm.
Injecting it before that is of no use generally,
Also, taking Gonal F beyond day 9 - 10 of your cycle is of no use, as the follicles are unresponsive to it after that.
Decapeptyl will help you once the lead follicle reaches a size of aleast 18 - 20 mm.
Do not take it before that.
Take care.
