What causes decrease in follicle size?

Hi Dr, In a follistim/femara cycle, my biggest follicle after 4 days of follistim was 15mm but after 2 additional days, it went down to 11mm. The blood work shows I had not ovulated and dr increased dose. Is there hope for a follicle that decreased to increase again with good egg? Thanks

Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, if you ate taking some hormone medicine for production of follicles, so this may not work hundred per cent because this is entirely depends upon endogenous hormone concentration (Body's own hormones works here ) role of medicine may little one or questionable, hope this information helps, take care have a nice day.
