Hi I am new BB for this site. I send my mare to Reproduction Veterinary facility for breeding using AI frozen and ET. Vet told me my mare had hemorrhagic on her follicle. What cause it come from? Vet wrote on the email read bottom:

That happens occasionally when a follicle is maturing in the presence of progesterone. It doesn't evacuate when the ovum is mature and blood enters the lumen. These usually respond to prostaglandins just fine, so we'll give her prostaglandins in a few days and try again. I would expect her to be normal this time around.

Anyone had expereinced with their mares? This is my first time to send my mare to Reproduction Facility.I never use frozen semen. I am too nervous about it I hope my mare get infoal sucess.

Thank,
Jamie

You might want to read the article about anovulatory hemorrhagic follicles that appears on this site (follow the link), which explains what they are and what can be done, although the researched information differs slightly from your veterinarian's explanation.

I think that what cause problem is my mare had irregular heat cycle. I wish to use Regumate for 14 days then gave shot bring into heat should not be problem. I am new breeder this is my 2nd time breeding my mare. Last first time bred was using fresh my own different vet told me use Regumate because my mare is mix up heat cycle so keep her on regumate for 14 days then shot, she got infoal first cycle no problem. Thank for that information.

The use of Regumate would not cause an AHF. There are however some simple reasons why Regumate would not produce a predictable estrus - check out the article on our site that discusses why progestins may not work to induce timely estrus.

Ok I think I need some serious clarification, as Iam not all that well versed in breeding, although I seem to be getting an expensive lesson!

When my mare was u/s and found to have a follicle large enough for breeding, the day we inseminated the follicle looked a lot like the ones in the article above "hemoragghic follicles" I asked a few questions of the vet and was told that she was ovulating at that time and you could see the follicle breaking down, changing shape and reducing in size, and I was also told that the darkness on the inside was blood and that is normal as a follicle ovulates. Now that is not the impression Iam getting from the above article.

Can someone please clarify ASAP, Iam getting sick to my stomach thinking that my vet is that stupid! Not to mention that this happened twice with this mare and I still have no pregnancy, and this mare is leaving tomorrow! Someone please help!!

An anovulatory hemorrhagic follicle is one that - by definition - doesn't ovulate. If it is followed over the course of several days, it persists, and as outlined in the article on the subject, one starts to see the formation of fibrin strands.

While an ovulating follicle may give the same appearance initially, an ovulation will resolve in the course of a day or so into a clearly identifiable anechoic CL.

Big difference... :-)

Thank You! So I was premature to think what I did, or panicked!
