Bleeding after IUI & Trigger shot

Hello all,

On 1/31 I got a trigger shot and on 2/3 we did an IUI. on 2/14 I started bleeding. It looks like a period. Four days later I am still bleeding. Does this mean that it failed? I did contact my Dr. Office they told me the blood test I did on 2/8 showed I am ovulating but that is all I got from them? Any help will be helpful as I am not sure what to think. Trying to keep it together.

It seems early to be a period, but if the bleeding is heavy, it could be. Call your doc again and go over your hormones ... are you on progesterone?

I am yes
I would certainly phone in to the doctor or his or her call service, to ask about what is happening. Unless you are taking it wrong, usually being on progesterone will prevent a period.
Also, if you did the IUI on the 3rd and you are now pregnant, you would probably see a positive on an early-results home pregnancy test if you test with first-morning urine.
