Week 27: Checking Lindsay’s ovaries
A week after she has started taking FSH injections, Lindsay comes back to the clinic to have another ultrasound scan. This time the gynaecologist is looking to check that the ovaries are full of eggs. Lindsay’s ovaries are not as big as the gynaecologist thinks they should be at this stage, so she will have to increase the amount of FSH in her daily injections.
Lindsay comes back for another scan two days later and the gynaecologist tells her that her ovaries are the right size. The nurse co-ordinator makes an appointment for Lindsay to have an operation to collect her eggs.
