Follicles on ultrasound?????

I have a question that maybe someone can answer....I went in today for a transvaginal ultra-sound because I have been having pelvic pain and spotting between periods. Of course the technicians don't tell you much, when I asked her if everything looked ok she said I'm getting nice clear pictures, and then she said she saw alot of follicles on my left ovary. She wouldn't go into detail. Does anyone know what she meant by this? She said my Doctor will call me with the report and unfortunately my Dr is out all day tomorrow, so I have to wait all weekend until Monday to find out the exact results. What do they mean by follicles? Thanks- Ellie

Re: Follicles on ultrasound?????

A follical is the sack(looks black on the ultrasound) that holds the egg ..once the egg is releasedit is also known as ovulation. It can usually be seen about cycle day 3 to 14 . Cycle day 1 is the first day of your period. The more follicals the better odds of conceiving multiple babies. Usually we have one follical a month that fully matures and alot of smaller ones that never fully mature each cycle. You will also notice wehn you are ready to release the eggs your cervical mucus will become egg white feeling slippery....That is your peak fertile time.Once the cervical mucas changes back to creramy pastie white yoy have ovulated.
