I was on clomid for 6 cycles with ovulation but borderline numbers. This last month was my first cycle with Gonal-F 150 iu for 3 days and 75iu for 5 days. My first u/s was on cycle day 8 and I had 2 follicles at 11 mm, the nurse was happy with that and said they showed great potential. I had my 2nd u/s cycle day 14 and my follicles shrunk down to 8 mm and my estradiol level was 67. The NP said that the follicles had gotten oversaturated and started to shrink.. which I dont understand because if they were over responding wouldn't they actually grow rather than shrink? I am so confused!! The Dr. cancelled this cylce and said to call when I get my next period I was supposed to have had IUI this month. I'm just not sure as to why they shrank. Thanks!
