Trigger Shot question
deliela999 posted:
How long after the trigger shot did you ovulate? I took mine Saturday afternoon. I have 1 huge follicle on each side that's been causing me a lot of pain. When the ultrasound tech told me they are each the size of a normal ovary I said that explains the pain and she said absolutely. I'm anxious both for the pain to go away and to know I ovulated before DH leaves town in a few days for a business trip. It says in the instructions that if I was doing IUI they'd do it 36 hours after the shot, which passed overnight.

Thanks, I think that's about what happened. I woke up still feeling lousy, but as the day went on I kept feeling better and realized the pain was mostly gone. I take that to mean I must have ovulated. That makes me feel better about DH leaving town tomorrow.
