So, I had my trigger shot Sun am & then my IUI on Mon am- so I am 5 days out now. This is my 2nd cycle doing this with clomid. The whole week I have had wet cm but today it is almost pasty & thick- I guess
they call it egg white like. The last two days I was very tired & had cramping all evening till I went to bed & I guess it stopped by then. I actually feel great today besides all the cm.
My question is this-
The Doctor says that with the trigger shot it makes you ovulate within the next 36 hours thus the reason for the IUI the following day- within 12 hours given. So.... were my symptoms from ovulating? If they were than it seems like we missed fertilizing the egg if the IUI was on Monday -meaning sperm live 3 days egg 12-24 hours- it would have happened no later than Tues- not Wed. & Turs.
Do any of your Doctor's do a u/s after the IUI to see if you ovulated? I really think this should be done.
Again good luck to all & baby dust******** to all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am just reaching here but I love the feedback.
I think it's really hard to use you CM to decide if you ovulated or not when you're on a medicated cycle. The clomid itself can thicken your CM and then hormones just do all sorts of things. If your CM is "pasty", then that's NOT "egg white". Also the wet EWCM just happens AROUND ovulation... it will happen before, during, and maybe even a few days after. I think it's due to estrogen in your body, which doesn't disappear right away.
As far as an U/S goes, my clinic doesn't do any sort of testing after the IUI... no scans, not even any blood work until 2 weeks after the IUI when I go in for my beta.
I wouldnt put to much thought into CM while medicated but here is some info on CM
Dry: At the beginning of your cycle, prior to ovulation you will likely produce little to no cervical mucous. Also right before your period should start your cervical mucous may become dry again. If you do not notice cervical mucous you will want to record this on your chart as dry.
Sticky: You may notice sticky cervical mucous prior to ovulation. It feels sticky to your fingers when you touch it
Creamy: As you get closer to ovulation you will notice thicker, creamy-looking cervical mucous. This mucous looks and feels similar to lotion.
Eggwhite: Eggwhite cervical mucous is the term used to describe the mucous you have during ovulation. It looks like eggwhites and is slippery, clear, and stretchy.
Watery: Watery cervical mucous is wet and may be stretchy. You may notice this type of cervical mucous during ovulation or before having eggwhite cervical mucous.
