I'd assume they are still doing some kind of monitoring with an unmedicated cycle as well, so those would really only be the price differences.
Personally, I'd do the trigger. I prefer doing the trigger and knowing within a very precise window as to when I will ovulate.
I was wondering the same thing too Jen. Unless the no Trigger option also includes NO monitoring, I don't understand why the price difference is so much.
Our TTC journey:
Spent part of 2008 and most of 2009 working with my OB taking Clomid and charting and never ovulating.
Summer 2009 finally started seeing an RE. Officially diagnosed with PCOS and DH with swimmer issues.
October 2009: Clomid 100mg- cycle petered out
November 2009: Clomid 150mg+trigger+IUI=
in December 2009!
