Wheres my egg??

Aug 02, 2011 - 5 comments

I am frustrated :(   Had 1st IUI ever yesterday in hopes of my positive OPK today and I still haven't received it, I always have a positive OPK by now, I am afraid that I wont ovulate and it will be a big waste of money. How can I not ovulate on 100 mg of Clomid (days 3-7)??   BUMMED!!!!

Did they do a follicle scan a few days before the IUI?  That's what I had on like, day 12 so they knew there were eggs growing.  I think they say they can grow between 1 and 2 mm per day and they are looking for eggs over 18mm for ovulation.  I think when I had the scan on day 12, I had a few at 12 and 13 mm so by the time I got a positive OPK & had scheduled the u/s (I think it was day 17 or 18, maybe even 19), they figured they'd grown to 18mm+.  Anyway, if this IUI doesn't work out, insist that they do a follicle scan (not sure how much they cost) so you can be sure things at least "look like" they are going to ovulate well.

As for Clomid, is this the first month you've been on 100 mg?  I know when I was on it (at 50 mg & 100 mg), I never got a positive OPK.  I have heard other women on MH say this too though it's not always the case.  I am guessing you didn't have any bloodwork done to confirm if Clomid has been making you ovulate?  I think I only did this one month out of all the months I took Clomid.  Just another suggestion on how to track ovulation I guess.

Wishing you lots of baby dust and hoping this IUI timing works out hun!

I have been on clomid for 5 other cycles, all with blood tests to confirm ovulation, I don't understand what is going on with this cycle, but doesn't it figure its the cycle where we did IUI. There was no follicle scan because we are avoiding a fertility clinic and all of this is being done with my OBGYN and Midwife. Im just getting really frustrated.

I guess that makes it less expensive to use your OBGYN and Midwife?  Mine wouldn't do anything for me except prescribe Clomid so after 6 failed rounds of Clomid, I went to the RE.  Well, I was just trying to give you some suggestions for next time in case this isn't "it" for you yet.  Again, maybe it's just the OPK not picking up on ovulation but I guess keep taking them for the next few days to see what happens and, in the end, you've got the two week wait to confirm it all.  Are you temping?  I did in the very beginning of TTC but that's before we were taking anything or really worried but maybe you could try it.  I understand if you don't want to get too anal-retentive about it all though.  The amount of time and work going into this can get out of control and run your life if you obsess too much.  I know I let it drive me crazy more than I should have!  :)  

All I can say is that I really hope this is the month and the OPKs you have are just being testy (no pun intended).  Take care and I'll be waiting for an update when you feel like it!
