It all depends on how long the follicles took to get to a mean diameter of 17-18mm. If they reached 17-18mm diameter within 11-12 days, the chance that the cycle might work is always there and the percentage success will depend on your age. However, if they drag their heels and do not progress as planned by enlarging by at least 2mm every 24 hours, then the chances of the cycle working is pretty slim regardless of age. One then has to determine why this has happened, rectify the cause and try again, possibly with a different protocol.
