Three days ago, I had an appointment for an ultrasound to look for mature follicles. My follicles were only at 10-14mm, so they had me do 3 more days of Follistim injections, hoping that they would grow to maturity. Today when I went back (CD14), I had two mature follicles -- 17.5mm and 19mm. Also, my estrogen level had increased from 44 on Friday (CD11) to 122 today (CD14). The nurse told me that this was close to being on target.
However, when I Googled that (as I have a tendency to do), I found that this seems to be low for having two follicles. Is that correct? Do I have reason to believe this cycle will not work because of my estrogen level, or is it okay? What could be the cause of having a low estrogen level?
Thanks SO much!
