I am in the middle of stimming & have been stimming for just about a week now. The dosage I am on, is double of what I took last IVF cycle & I am also using microdose lupron, which I did not use last cycle. I was in for an US & BW this morning & it seems like one follicle is growing faster than the others & that the others are taking a bit longer than the norm to grow. What does this mean & what can be the reason or reasons this is happening? I am concerned, this can lead to either a cancelled cycle or a failed cycle. Please advise

Thank you so much!
