hello fellow queer parents...

i was planning to use a trigger shot this pm for an insemination saturday morning. my follicle was 17.5mm yesterday, and this morning i had a negative opk. however, i just did another opk, and it came out positive (both lines are light since it's the afternoon, but they are definitely equal). my question is, [B]is there any benefit to still triggering tonight?[B] would it be harmful to my body to have both natural and synthetic O stimulation. i'm hesitant to skip the trigger since it feels like a guaranteed O. what do you all think?

i would probably trigger anyway... like you said, guaranteed O. sometimes ppl get that +opk and never O! i reall doubt it could be harmful for your body to have natural and "synthetic" (it's not really synthetic, it's just a hormone your body didn't produce) stimulation.

good luck with your decision and good luck for this cycle!!

I would trigger as well.

Are you followed by a RE ? What is his advice ? Because you might want to do the insem a bit earlier, say 24 hours post trigger instead of 36 if you are only doing one... You want to catch that eeg and it only lives for about 20 hours !

thanks for the input wehrli and Coco99. i did use the trigger at 9pm, and i had the initial LH surge at 2pm (thursday). i already had an insemination scheduled for 9am saturday and i added another for today (friday) at 11am--so hopefully one of those will be timed well! i lazily use an RE since i have been doing unmedicated cycles and only go to the office for IUIs. her perspective is that you don't need the trigger if you surge on your own. wehrli, i assumed the trigger was a synthetic hormone...thanks for filling me in.

i hope to join the queer and pregnant thread soon! best, erin

it's made from pregnant women's urine... at least mine was (pregnyl). i think it's pretty weird, but hey, whatever works!
