Hi!  I am scheduled for egg retrieval Thursday morning and at the moment I have a 22, a 20, a 17, a15 and 2 14mm follicles. Had anyone hung off this long with some biggies? Worried that the ones around 20 will be too big by then? Can I loose te eggs I this happens? Cx

    Hi...
    I don't think I am going to be too helpful, but at my nearly last scan, I asked the same question of my clinic.
    The answer seemed to be that nothing would really happen to the big ones (they wouldn't pop or anything), and they would aspirate them all at EC. However, my clinic did say that the big ones may become 'post mature'. My nurse seemed to think it was OK to 'sacrifice' one or two bigger ones for the sake of brining more smaller ones up to size ready for EC.
    Good luck to you! ^reiki^
