    After having Gonal-F (to increase egg production) my usual ovulation of Day 14-16 (in my 30 day cycle) actually occurred on Day 11. When the earliest I could reaslistically take a pregnancy test? Should I test based on my usual Day 30 cycle (i.e. on Day 30), or exactly two weeks after the egg release/IUI procedure (i.e. which is actually about Day 27)? If I use too early I'll just depress myself with the inevitable :bfn:

    (Clearly I've already bought the pregnancy tests - plural - and just need to try avoiding using too early as usual :rofl: )

    BTW - sorry if I'm not abbreviating commonly used terms enough, still getting used to forums on this subject - sorry :oops:

    But it so hard...
    I even asked the doctor if he had pills to make two weeks go by faster! Obviously he said unfortunately he didn't or he'd be much richer!

    Hello Catwoman! Having had 3 IUI's myself, I was always told by my Dr. to test 2 weeks after the egg release/IUI procedure and not sooner because the trigger shot can actually give you a false positive because of the hcg hormone in it. I know how you feel about your 2WW...I'm in the same boat only my results are tomorrow!

    Lot's of luck, I hope this IUI works for you! :hug:
