Follicle measurement – measurement of follicles

An ultrasound investigation is used for monitoring and measuring the build-up of the uterine lining and the size of the follicle  (Eibläschen) and to establish the exact time of ovulation   and the best time for fertilisation.

Follicle measurements are usually carried out between day 12 and day 14 of the cycle – just before ovulation, which is between day 14 and day 16 of a regular 28-day cycle.

Regular monitoring of follicle growth (cycle monitoring) is particularly important during hormone stimulation , to prevent overstimulation and to keep the risk of unwanted multiple pregnancies low.
