Many couples having trouble conceiving are frequently prescribed clomiphene citrate, more commonly referred to as Clomid. I don't post here often, but I do read the forums a lot. So does anyone know what's the point of the hcg trigger? My doctor did not monitor my follicals by US or give me a trigger shot. Does exercise really lower fertility? Maryland Pennsylvania Virginia Washington, D. That way they can time the IUI with more accuracy. I hope you don't mind if I join you.
So its refreshing to read!
IUI with Clomid and HCG trigger shot.
I am in the same boat as most of you. I've tried three rounds of clomid with my obgyn with no luck - not even ovulation. You could have cramping and the egg still be there.
My husband and I have been TTC for two years.

OMG-thank you so much for your message! The ultrasound, completed intravaginally, allows the physician to visualize the thickness of the uterine lining and the ovaries, more specifically the number of follicles within them. Monitoring can tell the physician when an unsafe number of follicles have been developed, allowing them to advise the patient to abstain from intercourse to avoid the increased risk of a higher order pregnancy.
Finding the correct dosage that results in the development of a single follicle in the beginning is a bit of guess and check. I should probably know the answer to this, but after ovulation is there any sort of window period where you are still able to get pg? Only one took though and I was able to get pregnant! Archived discussions are usually a bit older and not as active as other community content.
I was lucky to have no nasty side effects from clomid, and really was surprised to find that HCG trigger shot was no biggie at all - the world's tiniest needle, I just took a deep breath and plunged it into my abdomen very squeamish DH. There is a group of us there that are having a more difficult time getting pg, and we like to hang out together. Lack of response indicates to the physician a higher dosage of medication is needed.
Find out if having undergone an abortion could affect your ability to conceive. For this reason, a full fertility evaluation looking at the sperm quality through a semen analysis and confirming that the tubes are open with an HSGshould be completed prior to starting any treatment, including Clomid.
Although it depends on what your like - for me I had to completely concentrate on it. All tests have been normal.
