Hello doctor,

I have an ultrasonography which states I have bulky ovaries with multiple small follicles. I wanna know what does that mean and can I take Ipill and is it safe?



Welcome to icliniq.com.

The report to me is normal with normal size uterus and also the ovarian size even though it mentions bulky ovaries (attachment removed to protect patient identity). But an ovary is considered bulky if the volume of each is more than 10 cc. The presence of small multiple subcenterimetric follicles indicate developing follicles and cannot be labelled as polycystic ovaries unless the criteria for clinical hyperandogenism like acne, hirsutism, acanthosis nigerians and oligomenorrhoea is met.

The presence of frequent urination points towards possibility of a urinary tract infection which can be ruled out with a urine routine microscopy test. Also if you have been sexually active, then its always better to take an emergency contraceptive pill within 72 hours of intercourse to avoid unplanned pregnancy.
