Estradiol levels rising too fast during IVF

Post by sanda » Thu Jan 07, 2016 10:54 pm

Hi,
is it true that a mature follicle produces about a level of 200 of E2 and estradiol levels should be doubling about every 48 hours during IVF stimulation? If an E2 level is rising too rapidly during stims does this indicate poor egg quality? My E2 level rose from 1500 on Day 8 of stims to 3900 on day 10 of stims. I have about 12-14 mature follicles.

A mature follicle can generate a level of about 200.

The rise in estradiol is not a straight line but is on the log scale which accounts for your more rapid rise at the end. It's normal for that to happen.
