Well, I went to the RE and had my CD 3 blood work done and my FSH came back at 6.2 and my E2 was 67.

Desiree,

Don't panic - they don't normally measure follicles ten and under and at this point they all probably were less then ten. Your E2 is approximately 200 per mature follicle but I hate that rule of thumb because it's misleading. Each follicles has an E2 level even if it's teen tiny. So if yo have 20 follicles ten mm's or less (which would be VERY common) it wouldn't be abnormal at ALL to have an E2 over 400.

It's all fine, I promise.

omg! Those are big follicles to miss! Wow! Well, at least you can stop worrying now and get to DTD!

The Metformin gave me stomach problems for the first few days but got better after that. For me it was very important to take it with food.

Good luck!
