Educate me please

edited May 2014 in Secondary IF
So my progesterone level on Friday ended up being only .5 - When ovulation occurs or is about to occur, I believe, it should be between 1-3?! I think that is what they said. Anyway, so even with a follicle at 18mm Friday, they told me to do a opk on Saturday, if I got a positive, do the trigger shot, if negative, wait until Sunday and trigger no matter what. At that point my follicle should be even bigger, and the trigger will release it & send me into ovulation. Now, I asked about the progesterone capsules, and she said that if I trigger Sunday, start the progesterone Thursday morning, because we don't want it to kill the sperm. So I trigger Sunday, progesterone on Thursday morning- the egg & the sperm have met up at that point (if they are going to meet up), and it won't disrupt anything?!

Please school me on this...Thanks!

(OPK was negative saturday, so I triggered sunday)

Re: Educate me please

  • The NP at my practice said that with the trigger shot it is 99% sure that you will ovulate within 12-36 hours after trigger.  If you start the progesterone too early it can kill the sperm and delay ovulation.  My first cycle using progesterone my OB just had me use opks and I start the suppositories 3 days after what I thought was ovulation.  Turns out I hadn't O'd, and by the time I ended up in the RE's office I was in the middle of a 56 day cycle and had a 26mm follie!  So as long as you start the progesterone 3+ days after trigger you are all good.  So if you triggered on Sunday, Thursday is fine to start the progesterone.
