I just had an iui from 100mgclomid trigger. Had 3 mature 1 smaller folliclegreat lining but 7day progestrone result is only 4.6.Did I ovulate?

I just had an iui from 100mgclomid trigger. Had 3 mature 1 smaller folliclegreat lining but 7day progestrone result is only 4.6.Did I ovulate?

Definitely: That is definitely an ovulatory progesterone level. With clomiphene I wouldn't get too hung up on "how many, " it is really only supposed to give you one or two follicles. It improves you chances of conceiving significantly anyway. Drugs such as hMG ("shots") will increase follicle number, but that's a whole 'other approach. Good wishes and good luck. ...Read more

I had IUI sun morn with my trigger sat morning. My lining was around 5-6 and I had 2 follicles that were around 18 by sun. Is that lining too thin to hope for conception? We had no sex other than iui

I had IUI sun morn with my trigger sat morning. My lining was around 5-6 and I had 2 follicles that were around 18 by sun. Is that lining too thin to hope for conception? We had no sex other than iui

On the thin side: An endometrial lining of 5-6 mm is on the thin side but apparently it was sufficient to meet your doctor's criteria to proceed with the IVF protocol. This would mean he/she thought the chance of conception was reasonable, not "zero." There are other favorable features of endometrium potentially present. I would certainly continue to hope that this cycle will result in pregnancy. Best wishes:) ...Read more

Extroverted Uterus?: I'm not sure what you mean. You can anteverted, tilted forward, or retroverted, tilted backwards. It really doesn't matter. Extroverted is a new one on me. I'm not sure what it means if your uterus is outgoing and makes friends easily? ...Read more
