I know it is WAY too early to tell at this point anything in terms of future egg quality and maturity, but I hope you will appease me with my need to know something more about my progress than I am doing "fine". I am almost 39 with unexplained infertility. I started Lupron seven days before my period and remain on Lupron (half dose 1x a day)now with Fertinex 2x a day. I have been on Fertinex for three days and learned on ultrasound this morning that if the count is accurate, there are 8 follicles on one ovary and seven on the other ovary. Again, I know that nothing can be determined at this stage about the eggs, but in terms of the number of follicles, am I below average, average or above average for my age of 38/39? Also, am I correct in my understanding that at this point the number of follicles will remain constant for this cycle? I know I should have asked my own RE but it didn't occur to me at the time and I didn't want to interrupt his weekend since I was told my bloodwork and ultrasound were "fine". Thank you for your response!
