Hey ladies, hope you don't mind if I join you. I am currently CD 8. I go in for u/s monday. I am barely making the late april mark but my body is sometimes a late responder. So idk exactly when I will be having my iui. to all
How excting Cynthia! Today I am 8dpo...bfn this morning. My temp is still up though, but I'm not symptom spotting or anything, just taking it one day at a time.
Hoping Julie I would just ask your doc what the reasoning is why they don't want to use the trigger shot with you. I know some peple don't use them though if they have a regular cycle and ovulate regularly. I ovulate on my own but usually late in my cycle so thats why I need it.
Hoping Julie-Is your doctor using ultrasound to monitor your ovulation or are you just using opk's? I suppose if you ovulate on your own then it shouldn't be a big deal not to get the trigger shot. I wasn't going to get one with my first IUI but my body wouldn't release the one big folly I had so they gave me a trigger shot so I wouldn't miss my window. Otherwise, I would have had a really short luteal phase.
AMN21-stay positive! 8dpo is still a tad early. It's great that your temps are still high. What brand of hpt's are you using?
I set my appointment up for tomorrow morning! Praying that I have no cysts and this cycle is a go!
He is using ultrasounds to check my follicle count, then nothing. sends me home and tells me to have sex and just "assumes" i ovulated... I asked him last appt why I had a positive opk for 4 days in a row and he just sort of shrugged and scratched his head. And this is my fifth cycle of clomid so i insisted upon the iui, but if i am not releasing the eggs(s) whats the point?
Your doc wont even use a trigger shot for iui? Have you ever had a cycle day 21 progesterone test?
When I asked him about the shot he said "they are very expensive, and research hasn't really proved them to be all that effective" And I have only had initial diagnostic labwork done, so no specific cd progesterone level check
