[quote=minihorseowner]I have been on clomid cd 4-8 and then continued for another 5 days (follicles not quite reacting how they wanted). I had an u/s yesterday & am responding well. They suspect I may ovulate on Sunday so have to check opk. If positive I schedule my IUI for Monday. If not I go for u/s monday am to see if ready. They said if not ready Monday I would need trigger shot monday pm
and do IUI on Wednesday. IUI on Wednesday DOES NOT WORK! My hubby won’t be home.
Anyone NOT need a trigger shot on 100mg Clomid?
What are the chances I won’t need it?[/quote]
Hi [B]minihorseowner[/B], I’m not doing IUI (yet, insurance requirements), just TI, but I got the trigger after clomid (50mg). Clomid and trigger have different purpose, so don’t be discouraged. I got clomid to increase the possible numbers of follicles (got 3 this cycle), and then got the trigger shot (yesterday) to make sure the follicles break and realase the egg(s). Or that’s my understanding.
So from what I’ve read in your post, if the OPK is not showing ovulation, they think they should help the follicles to break, hence the trigger. If OPK doesn’t turn positive, I say go for it with the trigger! and good luck!
