What is follicular study?

Asked by annie007 (7points) April 9th, 2009

I went with my friend to a gynecologist, who suggested my friend to undergo a follicular study. After the results, my friend was told that no follicules were found. What does this mean?

Since we only have part of the information, it is hard to say but follicles are located on the ovaries and contain the eggs that potentially can be released.

It means that at least at the time the study was performed she couldn’t get pregnant.

This website has a nice explanation about what follicle monitoring (or, as you put it, a follicle study) entails. Note, I have no affiliation with this clinic. Basically, the patient is closely watched during an entire menstrual cycle, with frequent ultrasounds to determine if ovarian follicles are developing normally.
