Taking ovidrel. If I ovulate more than one follicle, do they release simutaneously or within a couple hours of each other?

Taking ovidrel. If I ovulate more than one follicle, do they release simutaneously or within a couple hours of each other?

Egg release 36 hrs+: Good question. They probably all do not release at the same time. Usually about 38-40 hours later, but it is highly variable. We do egg retrievals at 36 hours post Ovidrel and eggs are there. The IUI is usually at 36 hours.
Be sure to have intercourse in the 36 hours plus time. Best of luck! ...Read more

7 days post trigger, I have small amount of stretchy cm! Is it possible to ovulate later on ovidrel? I had a 19mm follicle time of trigger.

I keep reading that 36 hours is the ideal for IUI after Ovidrel shot. I received the shot on Tues at 10am, IUI Wednesday at 2pm. Is this ok?

Ideal 36 hours: The ideal time is said to be 36 hours. The fertility specialist however, know what works for them and remember the sperm will live for some time after the procedure. Good Luck :) ...Read more

I took an ovidrel shot under dr orders with 2 follicle measuring at 20 each, what are the chances that I didn't ovulate? Would I have felt it?

I took an ovidrel shot under dr orders with 2 follicle measuring at 20 each, what are the chances that I didn't ovulate? Would I have felt it?

Low: You should ovulate with ovidrel. The only reasons why you would not are a bad batch of medicine or taking it wrong. Some women need a higher dose due to body weight but essentially it should always lead to ovulation about 30-40 hours after taking it. You may not feel it. ...Read more

Ovidrel injection taken 3/28/14. Pain/redness/hardness at injection site started/noticed 3/31/14. Is this normal? Will it go away? If yes, when?

Odd: Sounds more like either a local reaction to the med or an infection from the technique. Would use warm compresses to area (or heating pad on low) and have it checked by your fertility-doctor. ...Read more

I am supposed to give myself the Ovidrel trigger shot tonight. I just tested and got a positive surge for ovulation. Do I still do the trigger shot?

I did an ovidrel shot 12 days ago and today I tested positive. Is it pregnancy?

I did an ovidrel shot 12 days ago and today I tested positive. Is it pregnancy?

Yes: I'm assuming that you are undergoing infertility treatments by a specialist. A blood test can be positive 12 days after ovidrel is given. A positive pregnancy test does not always lead to a baby. 15 % of all pregnancy's may miscarry. See your doctor. Did he give you progesterone to help support your pregnancy after giving you ovidrel? ...Read more

I had Ovidrel shot on 1/1/16. My BBT is now very high. Does this indicate a pregnancy or is it the ovidrel causing my temp to rise?

I had Ovidrel shot on 1/1/16. My BBT is now very high. Does this indicate a pregnancy or is it the ovidrel causing my temp to rise?

Hard to determine: Neither pregnancy nor Ovidrel should be causing a very high fever. If you have a high fever then you should be evaluated by your doctor for infection. Ovulation can cause a very brief and very mild temperature spike. It should not be high. If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. They are cheap, reliable and available at any pharmacy. ...Read more

Took ovidrel on Monday, told I would ovulate 2day but I have no fertile mucus present to confirm ovulation. Can I ovulate later on ovidrel?

Testing: Cervical mucous is not a great way to assess ovulation. The best way is to check a Progesterone test on day 21 to see if ovulation occurred. Cervical mucous monitoring works for some but not others. ...Read more

Just got my ovidrel shot yesterday and is it best to have sex the day off and the two main days you're most fertile?

Ask your doctor: Ovidrel is given to trigger the maturation and release of the egg from the ovary. You should have intercourse at about 12 and 36 hours after the Ovidrel then anytime after that. You should verify with your doctor though as their protocol may differ. Good luck. ...Read more

I had a positive OPK Saturday morning, should I still give myself the Ovidrel injection Saturday night for my IUI scheduled for Monday?

Ask your doc Saturda: This depends on several variables to give you your best chance at success. Can you call your doctor today? He/she is the only one who should advise you about this! IMHO any doctor who treats fertility patients with Ovidrel and IUI must be available 7 days a week to answer these questions. Good luck ...Read more
