Hi nature, don't worry about the size of your follies on the first scan as they will do a LOT of growing between now and EC. Mine were always slow to start with but grew nicely towards the end. You may find you need to stim for a little longer than expected or that your dose gets increased but as this is your first cycle there will be a little give and take.

Good Luck

As CT said...don't worry. This is normal. I always start slow and stimmed for 2 weeks last time. Your dose is low so they are just watching your progress as its your first cycle. You have lots of follies also so the drugs have to feed all of them. Expect to stimm for 2 weeks and you will be there.

Take care and good luck x

Don't worry some of us are slow but steady, I'm usually exactly the same, and they usually only increase my dose towards the end. I start off very slow, and stimm for up to 16 days sometimes! But lots of follicles are good, esp if they are all the same size. It's much better than having some big ones and some small. So just hang in there, you just probably won't be one of the 9 day stimming girls!
