"timed intercourse"
praying4baby2011 posted:
Hi everybody!! I'm new to this site! We have been TTC since 3/08, had a miscarriage 11/09. I was on Clomid for 7 cycles and have just started seeing a fertility specialist! And have been on 75 iu of follistim for the last 13 days. At my last US, I had 1-12mm and a couple under 7mm on my right and nothing work noting on my left. I was supposed to go today for an US, but due to weather had to cancel. So I'm going tomorrow!
Now that I filled you in, my question is will my DR. tell us when to have intercourse? Or will I still take an ovulation test?

Thank you in advance for any information you can provide!!

The best days to have intercourse are the days preceding and the day of ovulation. Your ultrasound will help them determine whether you are ready to release an egg/eggs based on their size, and sometimes the doctor will have you do an HCG trigger (injection) to help your body do that. If that's the case, you should have intercourse the day of the trigger and the day after, as ovulation should happen within 36 hours of the shot. Otherwise they will probably recommend doing OPKs and BDing the day you get a positive test and the day after.

I hope that helps! Best of luck tomorrow!

Thank you for the information! I get in that dr's office and all of my intelligent questions go right out the window!!

Today was not successful, at least not as of right now. The nurse that did the us today didn't say much. She said we will wait until my estrogen levels come back.
