Same here, Jen. That is a lot of money. IUI with u/s monitoring is $250 at our doctor. Then the trigger shot was $40 at the pharmacy that we used. Clomid was cheap. Like $10 cause of our insurance, maybe?

Anyway, I have no stats, just experience of what worked for me. I did clomid+trigger+IUI my first try. It was a bust.

Second try we did Clomid 100mg+mid cycle ultrasound and I chose to use OPK's and call them when they turned positive. I purposely waited an extra day because I surge for 2 days and not just one. I felt like waiting out increase the chances that the sperm and egg would meet...since washed sperm don't live as long. Well it worked.

You have to do what you feel comfortable with, but trust that you know your body very well. And ask about those prices. It just seems so steep.
