Gonal F injections and low E2 levels


So I was going through a Gonal-f cycle for IUI, and my E2 levels kept falling despite having one good-looking follie on U/S, so my dr recommended not doing the IUI this cycle. He instructed me to take the Pregnyl (trigger) and wait for CD1, and we would try again (possibly with different meds/doses).

Two questions:

1) Has anyone had this happen?

2) How long after trigger should AF come? He seemed to think it would be soon-ish because I'm not taking any progesterone - like, 7-10 days post-trigger. Anyone experience this? I want to cycle back ASAP so I can start again...

I wonder if this is what happened to me this month. I was on Gonal as I have done many times. I always have a good amount of follicles but this time it was different. On the first follicle check there was one that was 1.0 then a bunch of small ones. On the next check the 1.0 grew and the others did not. I decided to do the progesterone and trigger. I triggered last Saturday so I am now 11 dpt. I am guessing that AF would come as it typically does for me on day 14.

Are you trying natural this month?

We decided to try natural this month. We have never tried without an IUI using progesterone.

TTCFirst for some reason natural doesn't work for my wife and me

I'm just waiting for CD1 so we can hopefully do the IUI this month. WE only have enough sperm banked for one more try and I kind of want the trying part over with so that I can get on with my life, either with another baby or not!
