User :   Today is my 14th day past my first IUI with using 100mg of Clomid CD3-CD7 and hcg trigger shot CD10. I am supposed to get my period today if it did not work but instead I am seeing white creamy CM instead and have seen this the past couple days. I normally have white creamy CM a few days before my period but usually the day or two days before my period I am dry (no CM). I am getting headaches, gasy, bloating, and some weird pulling feelings on my sides, as well as some cramping... With all of this could I be pregnant ir did the clomid and hcg trigger shot just delay my period? Especially since my cycles are usually 29-31 days. I am at the end of my TWW but I am nervous to get my hopes up.... can you shed some light on this please!!
Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hello
User :   I think it is also important that I mention that my husband had a vasectomy reversal last March and his sperm count was 42million/ml at time of IUI but motility and morphology were all good and I am only 27 with normal ovulation and no fertility issues myself.
Doctor :   Pls. give me few secs. to go through your query.
Doctor :   Are you TTC now ?
User :   yes!
User :   We have been since April of last year
Doctor :   Ok.
Doctor :   When was your LMP exactly - i mean dates ?
User :   February 12th
Doctor :   Ok, Hope you had a proper planning in having intercourse from Feb.20th to Feb.28th ?
User :   we had an IUI done
User :   as well as intercourse
Doctor :   Ok, IUI would be perfect .
Doctor :   Was it ICSI ?
User :   no just IUI with 100mg of Clomid for days 3-7 and then hcg trigger shot on February 21st and IUI on February 23rd
Doctor :   OK, i Think that was perfect.
Doctor :   Is it the first tiME you have got done a IUI ?
User :   yes
Doctor :   Dont worry, as you are just 27, you have higher chance to get pregnancy, and this is the best step you have taken as your husband is above 40 and has a low sperm count.
Doctor :   There are many factors that determine how successful an IUI procedure will be. Some of these are the same factors that apply to any fertility treatment: age of the female, ovarian function, fallopian tube blockage, pelvic adhesions and other additional causes of infertility, whether fertility medications were also used etc.
Doctor :   Do you have any gynec. problems ?
User :   none
Doctor :   So , i would say that you are perfect for a pregnancy, dont worry,the only cause to worry would be One important factor that is specific to intrauterine insemination is the amount of motile sperm that is inserted into the uterus. Several studies have indicated that if a man has a low number of progressively motile sperm after the sperm wash, that the chance for pregnancy is lowered. The lower the number, the lower the chances for pregnancy.
User :   so does hcg shot delay your period or do you get your period two weeks after ovulation whether triggerred or not
Doctor :   Yes it considerably delays the periods and has the following side effects :Nausea
Hair loss,
Mood Changes,
Doctor :   People who are having HCG shots must watch out for possible headaches. There could also be signs of irritability and restlessness. Some of the side effects would also include slight water retention and tenderness of breast tissue especially in women.
User :   ok so just because it is day 14 after the IUI and I don't have my period doesn't mean I won't get it tomorrow or the next day ... would you recommend that I wait until day 31 of my cycle and if I still don't have my period to make and appointment?
Doctor :   Yes, I would advise you to wait till March 14th which would be your 30 th day/15th
User :   Thank you
User :   bye
Doctor :   Thank you for consulting me.
Doctor :   Take care.bye for now
