Experiences with the methods are summarized. Follicular growth was monitored by ultrasound folliculometry (USFM) and estimation of serum estradiol (E2 values in physiologic cycles. USFM was found to predict follicular rupture-ovulation--more precisely than E2 values. Cases of disturbed folliculogenesis (persisting and luteinized unruptured follicle, cysts) are described. The wider use of USFM in Hungary is urged, because appropriate equipment is available while the chances of continuous hormonal monitoring are rather limited.
