Is follicles number representative of the number of expected eggs?

Hi all,
Just looking some advise I was in for my final scan today and Dr z I had 2-3 follicles off right and 5-6 on left and my egg collection is planned for Tuesday! I've read that it can be typical to only get around half the number of eggs as you have follicles. So am I only looking to get a few eggs? So 7-9 follicles so 3-5 eggs? (If I'm lucky?).

Have you ladies who have cycled before found this? I've been reading of ladies who have follicles in double figures n here I am with lower than that! A bit anxious now it's not really working! Iv been on 225ui the whole time! N they have been happy? Was a little disappointed earlier but not fully surprised as Iv had minimal (nearly none) symptoms!

Hi Jol,it's quality not quantity! I got a egg from every folicile this time and last I got ten eggs from 15 foliciles! Keep positive and there's still time for others to grow! Xx

Still time? Do they usually grow after trigger? I thought that was just to make what was already there ripe? I have to take the trigger at 10 tonight? I know quality is best but it the unknown of what's inside these little parcels lol and I normally love surprises!!!!! Think it's just a bit real now and because Iv not had any real symptoms I'm think the aule bodies just not playing ball and this might be our issue in general (we are unexplained) maybe I'm just ready for the knackers yard

When did you take your last fsh? You never know I heard a couple the same day as us got told they only had three follicles ready but managed to get another two so they had 5! This road is full of bumps and turns! I have everything crossed for you!

Xxx :)

They haven't done any bloods since just before I started treatment and they never gave me any results! Suppose it's just a wait and see game now x thanks for your replies

I was just thinking this over, by FSH did you mean my last injection? If so that was 7.30 sat night and my scan was around 10am. Sorry if I'm being blonde haha

Hi jol
7-9 follicles is great! I had 4-5 follicles on each ovary both times and had 9 eggs the first time and 10 the second. As hello said its all about quality. There are so many people who only get a few eggs but end up with a positive result.
Good luck xx

It is indeed about quality on my last cycle I only has 3 egg all 3 fertilised had 2 transferred and got pregnant with twins!! Unfortunately I miscarried one twin but the other is sound asleep in bed!

The highest number I've ever had is 7 and does seem to coincide with the number of follicles I have had.

Goodluck x
