Do you guys use OPKs before trigger


Just curious if anyone out there uses OPKs once their follies get to a certain size until confirmed O?

Last cycle I swear I ovulated less than 24 hours after the trigger shot just by CM and O pain, but this cycle I'd like to be sure but I also don't want to stress myself out if it's not necessary and I should just stick to ultrasounds and ovidrel.

I personally don't. My symptoms are out of whack because of the hormones so I don't rely on symptoms to tell me whether I'm ovulating. It could be ovulation, it could be a trigger shot side effect.
So I choose to trust the ultrasounds.

Thanks, Katie. That makes sense. Good luck with your IUI!

Well my IUI got cancelled and I had to cancel the cycle. Way too many mature follicles. We had 2 at 17, 2 at 16 and 5 at 14. My RE just didn't want to risk it. Unfortunately I DTD right before I got the call.
