Default New Plan of Action

After my weird spotting last month (I never really had a REAL period), I went to see my dr today to see what he thinks is going on & what we should do. Here is the plan of action for my next cycle:

1) 50mg Clomid cd5-9 (my first time on clomid)
2) OPKs beginning cd12
3) Ultrasound on day of LH surge
4) hcg shot when follies are right size
5) 2 IUIs with fresh sample (one immediately post trigger, one 2 days later)
6) progesterone b/w 1 week post IUI

I am so happy to be doing something different! This will be my first cycle on clomid and it will also be my first IUI using fresh sperm instead of frozen. If my calculations are correct, it looks like I'll be on vacation when I ovulate in December, so this will likely be my January protocol. I can't wait!!

Sounds good...only question would be if you are waiting for an LH surge using OPK's and then having an u/s - - - why the HCG trigger? It seems unneeded if you are waiting to surge on your own...
I would time the IUI's 12-36 hours post surge/trigger...P4 b/w is always handy to see if you are ovulating ok and make sure you have no P4 problems!

Sounds great to me! I think with Clomid a lot of REs like to do the HCG trigger even if you normally O on your own. Sometimes the Clomid can mess things up. It sounds like this should bring success!!

I also think it sounds like a good plan, but my question is if you are surging on your own, your follies will already be the right size . . . maybe I'm just splitting hairs
You sound really excited, good luck!
