Ultrasound: The Ovulation Calculator Ultrasound of the ovary is the most accurate way to asses ovulation. The many questions couples – women ¬– have about ovulation predictor kits and they're quite good, although you could have a false positive or a false negative with the predictor kit. With ultrasound, your can start out early in the cycle. When a follicle is about 5 millimeters, it has a little microscopic egg inside. Over three or four days that follicle is then 10, 12, 13 millimeters. By the time it gets to be 20 millimeters and you can see that very clearly with ultrasound, we know that that microscopic follicle inside the follicle is ripe and ready to ovulate. We can sometimes trigger that ovulation with an injection of HCG. Then we repeat that ultrasound about two days later and you can actually see the collapse of that follicle. Then you know that the woman has ovulated and released the egg. So ultrasound is the most accurate way of detecting the ovulation today.
