I just converted from an IVF to an IUI because I only had 3 mature follices after high stims and my doctor said I needed more to proceed with IVF.
I never had an IUI before (although I have done previous IVFs). I asked if I should still take the crinone (progesterone) and RE said yes, start 2 days after IUI.
I'm confused. With IVF, they start crinone 2 days after transfer (which would be several days after fertilizations). But, since IUI is so different, does 2 days make sense?
Also, I did a trigger shot and then had the insemination roughly 36 hours later. I have no idea whether I ovulated yet ... should I go ahead and BD?
For my IUIs my RE always had me start p4 support 2-3 days following the IUI. He also told me to BD that night for good measure. Do you temp? That's a good way to know for sure whether or not you O'd.
So, yes, 2-days post IUI for p4 support is standard. And I think BDing tonight is a good idea
Sorry to hear your IVF was canceled, but it's awesome that you've got three good follies in the running.
Hugs and GL!
