Am I suppose to or should I use OPK's?
I am scheduled for a sono on the 12th and IUI the day following as long as all looks good.

I have a box and half at home but I dont know if I should use it or not??



Didnt know if the meds would make it show up incorrectly or not.

HELP!

When I was doing injects I was told not to use OPK's as the bloodwork and u/s are much more accurate.
HTH
Good Luck

You can use them if you want, but with your upcoming IUI, I wouldn't bother. The doctor will be able to tell with the ultrasound and bloodwork. Are they going to trigger ovulation for your IUI?

Yeah ( if this is what that means)
They are going to give me the shot of HCG to make the eggs release and do IUI the day following!


I just have boxes of OPKs and HPT staring at me every night when I open my night stand drawer to put on cuticle cream... and I just want to use them! ha!

Since they will be giving you the hcg shot, there really is no point. It really is hard to go through the week between meds and the ultrasound and no be actively doing anything to speed along the process.

I have had a box just sitting around as well. I almost used them last month, when I was off meds.

When you go for your ultrasound ask them how soon you can use a hpt, to make sure you don't get a false positive.

i'm sorta in the same boat...if i haven't o'ed by the 15th, they are going to do my u/s and give me the trigger shot. i'm almost hoping that i haven't o'ed by then, just so i can get the shot and know for sure!
