I took my trigger shot on Saturday and had my IUI on Monday. I started progesterone supplements yesterday.
And my BBT still has not gone up! In fact, it keeps going down!
Is it possible that my trigger shot didn’t work and I never ovulated? I’m feeling really upset this morning.
(Based on my previous chart/previous IUI, my BBT rose the day after my IUI indicating ovulation.)
On top of it, I almost have no symptoms and last month I was miserable. Maybe it’s just my body getting used to the hormones in my system, but it further worries me something didn’t go right…
Note: I use the Ava bracelet for temping, thus the lower than normal temps.

tulipdazey : For me personally, I decided to put the thermometer away since I wasn’t sure how I was going to react to the Letrozole and HCG trigger. I figure I’m being monitored by my RE and they know what they are doing so it was time to let go a bit. I can’t tell if that means your IUI didn’t work. My best indicator after ovulation is a significant change in CM. Have you expressed your concern to your doctor?

ColoradoGirl : I did end up contacting my nurse. She said based on my ultrasound prior to my IUI, I had ovulated already. She said that BBT is not always accurate when you are on hormone supplements and force ovulation using a trigger shot.
It’s still very odd though. Last month, my chart DID follow a typicaly pattern, so it’s weird that it’s not this time around. On top of it, my temperature still went down yesterday. (Today, it did finally take a turn up, but nothing significant.)
I guess I am just going to have to trust my doctor!

tulipdazey : Weird, at least she had an answer. I kind of had the same thought as your nurse did. I figured that things would be super jacked up so I didn’t want to worry myself needlessly, which is why I ditched temping and OPK’s. My RHR is all funny too. More static than usual and pretty dang low.
I did have a weird moment where I panicked about maybe not ovulating after my trigger. It’s hard to just let go and trust that everything is working as it should. I remind myself every day that I’m being cared for by medical professionals who know way more than I do and I just have to trust them.
