    Pre-IUI UltraSound

    I had a day 12 ultrasound today to check maturity of follicles before having HCG shot. Dr was unable to locate either of my ovaries on the u/s so blood work was done to determine ovulation. Levels indicate ovulation is eminent, so HCG injection was done for IUI tomorrow. I am considered overweight and just recently turned 40. Would these be reasons for not being able to see anything on the scan? Any thoughts would be great. Thanks so much!

    Usually a mature follicle is pretty easy to see on sono. Sometimes body habitus or the ultrasound equipment may be limit the ultrasounds quality. Sometimes ovaries are just plain hard to find, even with follicle(s).
