So judging my my cramps, today should be CD1. I'm supposed to call my RE to get a prescription for Clomid, and if DH's tests come back okay next week, we'll be doing IUI after a trigger shot. Last cycle (no meds), my lining was only 8, so my RE was a little concerned about it.
Do I need to start meds with the Clomid to help the lining? Do they usually check it later and then add meds? Do I need to push for something to help if he suggests a wait-and-see approach?
If you have dealt with this, how did your RE do it? I'm just trying to make sure I'm covering all our bases so if we can go through with the IUI it has every chance to be successful!!

My RE puts me straight on Estrace as soon as I start the Clomid. He keeps me on it until a day or two after triggering-and then I start the Prometrium. My initial dose is 2 pills a day (2mg/pill I think). If my lining is still thin around cd 10, he adds two more pills to be taken vaginally. I am so happy that I start it right away because Clomid has really affected my lining. I know some doctors don't start it till later and only keep people on it for a few days.
I also take baby Aspirin to help...Good luck!
