Well another month of no treatments. Went and had an U/S yesterday. I was so looking forward to getting this month started, fresh month, was very optimistic. Well when my ovaries get on the screen, I immediately knew that I probably wasn't going to be doing any sort of treatments. I had one humongous follicle measuring like 42! Not good! It has to have been from 2 cycles ago that just kept growing! So of course I was very disappointed as I left the dr. office. They told me they would call me and let me know for sure what the dr would say but they were pretty sure nothing was gonna be happening this month. Sure enough, it was a no-go. :( so maybe we will have a miracle this month. Hoping and praying, praying, praying!

Are they giving you any kind of trigger shot to release your follicles?

No, they never mentioned anything like that. When I am on treatments, I do have a trigger shot that I take to control when I ovulate, but I have always ovulated regularly on my own. They said I could go on birth control this month to make sure they are gone by next time, but I wasn't really keen on that. Do u think that's something I should ask about?

I know that both when I was on Clomid, they would do a shot of HCG if the follies were a certain size.

I know I was very surprised that this one was even still there and twice the size. Cause I had to take last cycle off too cause I had like 3 follies that were still hanging around. So I didn't even use any sort of medication and it still got huge. Now when I'm on medication, they did monitor me and tell me to trigger when they get big enough, but these last 2 cycles I didn't use a trigger for either.
