Hey everyone!!! I have been kinda following along with this thread trying to learn as much as I can from you IUI ladies. I will be joining you all come the July IUI thread so I figured it would be good for me to start paying attention to what is going on. First off, good luck to you all!!! Hopefully the BFP will be coming your way fast!!! : Secondly, my question for you ladies is...when you have to give yourself the trigger shot to make yourself Ovulate does it have to be at a certain time of the day or just on a certain cycle day morning or night??? I know it is kind of a weird question, but I'm just starting to think ahead. Also, do they always check your Progesterone levels after having an IUI? I know I have read that sometimes they will put you on Proges. suppositories right afterwards is that right??? Is that a precautionary measure or just depends on what your P levels after the test. Sorry I'm so clueless here. Thanks!!! to you all!!!!!!!!!
The trigger shot for me has been done in the doctor's office, after the U/S monitoring. The first time they did it when my follicles looked really big. This time they gave the the shot after my natural LH surge (on Sunday) and after my U/S showed I already ovulated. The reason was to increase my prog levels (hCG keeps the corpus luteum alive and producing progesterone).
I haven't had to be on supplemented prog because my levels are okay at 7dpo. I get checked each time though, so if it's low this time, I'll get the supplements.
Good luck! And feel free to keep asking your questions! We'll do our best to help you through it.
