what is the average size of a mature follicle at ovulation?

I have searched and searched. I cannot find the answer ANYWHERE to my question. What size is a noraml/average follicle in order to ovulate. Mine was about 17 on day 11, and at what rate per day do follicles grow??? For example, day 10 16.11 day 11 about the same. DOES ANYONE KNOW ANYTHING????? Thanks to all. This month I'm going to go crazy!aaaaahhhhhhhhhh........

When I go for my ultra sound I was told that the size was to be at least 18 before taking my hcg injection's.This month they were 18,19,20 and 20 1/2.I am so excited.But again you can't go by my size because,I am on ferility injection's.But I was told by several people I know, that the follicle's should be at least 18. I hope this help's and good luck to you.<p>[This message has been edited by moderator3 (edited 06-17-2001).]

It depends on the treatment you are having (if any). With injectibles, they like to see follies of around 17mm (it will very from clinic to clinic) with clomid, they prefer 20-22mm.

The docs will probably say that the follies grow around 2mm per day but you cannot by any means rely on this. One cycle mine went according to the textbook but the next cycle they didn't grow for 3 days and then shot up 5mm over night. if you are being closely monitored you have nothing to worry about.
Good luck
