@wowweddings20000:  It depends on the size of the lead (biggest) follicle. They like them to be  between 18mm-24mm when they trigger. Doc might be waiting for the little ones to try to catch up. But with TI (Timed Intercourse) and IUI they dont want you to have too many follicles, so it is strange that he didnt trigger (as long as the 2 large follicles were the right size)

She ABSOLUTELY has the right to ask for one.  She is her own biggest advocate.  The only reason to not do one is as @KoiKove: said – too many follicles.

When I was starting my IUI cycle, I had to advocate for myself.  Due to my PCOS, I have a ridiculously high number of eggs.  So, my doctor was always very cautious to not get my dosages too high to not overstimulate me or produce too many follicles.  My IUI cycle was my absolute last shot, so I wanted to really go for it.  So, I asked for a higher dosage.  I asked if we could start high and then go down if need be.  He agreed and that’s what we did.  I was able to get pregnant that cycle.  I often wonder that had I not spoken up, would it have worked for us.

So, yes, she can and SHOULD ask about the trigger.

All the best to her!

@wowweddings20000:  Totally agree with @Candy_Nee:  You have to be your own advocate. I loved my doccccc, but sometimes with so many things going on, your particular situation gets missed. But in your daughters case, that just sounds like incompetance. If she likes the doc, then she should talk with him and ask why he didnt trigger. But if it were me, I’d switch docs. He doesnt seem like he knows what he is doing!
