Should I move forward with only 4 follicles to begin with?

Postby Pocahontas » Fri May 03, 2013 3:32 am

Hello everyone, I'm new here. Please help me with my questions. I don't know what to do, we plan to start IVF next month. I'm 38 years old. Doctor said my follicles 1 on the right and 3 one the left. How many follicles can I have more with injection to stimulate the follicles? Should I do IVF because my follicles count really low?
Thank you everyone.

That is a relatively low response. I expect it would reduce your chances below the average for your clinic in your age group. Whether it's worth proceeding I cannot say. Up to you and your physician.

Some clinics will convert to IUI when the number of follicles is low, usually when in the 1-3 range.
Avoid IVF and surrogacy in Ukraine. Ukrainian centers pay shills to post here under numerous sock accounts pretending to be patients in Ukraine. Centers using such deceptive advertising cannot be trusted and should be avoided.
