hogoboom2012:  THX! That’s exactly what my RE said – only need one. 🙂 He said Femara is good at moving O date in women with long cycles, and ideally would give one a 28-30 day cycles. He also said that usually it produces one or max two good quality follicles, and not to expect more on Femara. If the goal is to grow multiple follicles, they would try Clomid.

Kabatchy2be:  Sorry I missed this before! I think they try to trigger not later than 20mm for IUI cycles because if you start to LH surge on your own it can mess up the timing. I’ve seen 26mm as an upper limit for “ideal” size and over 30mm or so called a cyst rather than a follicle, just too big. Mine was 27mm when I triggered. But to tell if the egg is getting over-mature, you have to look at the estrogen level as well as follicle size. When I triggered, my estrogen was almost at 800 for a single follicle which is REALLY high, especially for a femara cycle. I think the usual number when doing clomid/FSH is 200 per mature follicle, but it can be lower with femara. So to tell if a follicle is immature, mature, or over-mature you have to look at both follicle size and estrogen level.
