Our expert says:
The question depends on whether you are using any ovulation enhancing agents currently and whether the 3 follicles are all likely to reach maturity at the same time. Were ovulation enhancement drugs are used this may result in multi-ovulation and there is unfortunately no method by which selective ovulation can be blocked and therefore the risk of multiple pregnancies will remain should to proceed. However in a fertility clinic it possible to extract the excess eggs by means of transvaginal egg retrieval and allow just a single follicle to rupture and in this way the likelihood of multiple pregnancies can be reduced although not entirely eliminated. The best method would be to continue follicle tracking by means of ultrasound scanning to establish the point of follicle maturity and then to decide on the best method of management there after. In cases of underlying PCOS it is often the case that follicles will not continue to develop beyond a certain point and therefore your fears maybe unfounded, as ovulation may still not occur spontaneously.
