I don’t have experience with IUIs but are you tracking your BBT? That’s the only way to truly know if you’ve ovulated or not. I always had EWCM leading up to ovulation and rarely any afterwards. Baby dust to you for your IUI!

@tney13:  Did you go in for monitoring during the cycle, or does your clinic just time the IUI based on your opks? If they do monitoring to determine timing, I think you have to just trust them. Fertility meds may screw up your normal CM patterns, but since the IUI bypasses the cervix that shouldn’t matter. 

Fwiw, I totally relate, I am on my first IUI cycle (currently in the tww) and was also stressed about whether I had already ovulated and whether the trigger worked. I didn’t temp this month either because I wasn’t sure how the meds would impact temps.

@tney13:  Mine was monitored too, so hopefully they know what they’re doing with all those ultrasounds and blood tests!

I’m 12 days post IUI and was supposed to test this morning and got a negative… have been cramping for a couple days so I’m pretty sure AF is on the way unforunately. I expected it but still sucks. Here’s hoping the next one works. 

Wishing you luck!
