festivus- Sorry to hear about the - this month.
We went in to see the doc after IUI #3 as well just to see if it was time to move ahead and go to IVF but she suggested that we try 2 more IUI's and then go to IVF.
I have always had the trigger shot the day before all 4 of my IUI's, the only time I had back to back IUI's was when the sperm was frozen and not fresh. I had also asked my RE is we did fresh should we do back to back IUI's and she said there is no data that suggests that your chances go up.
I wish you luck in your next steps. As for me I am 10 days post IUI #4. I am getting more and more nervous as this week goes by. BETA is on Friday, wish me luck. Keep me posted and good luck with the doctor.

Unfortunately, due to my vacations and his during August, I can't get in to see him until September 11. So, I'm turning to you ladies with one of my questions! For those who have done IUI with a trigger shot, what was the time BETWEEN giving yourself the trigger shot and having the IUI. I have read so many different recommendations online that I don't know what to think. Mine have been about 12-16 hours apart, but I see some recommendations that the IUI should be 24-48 hours after the trigger shot. Also wondering how many of you did 2 days in a row of IUI (i.e., trigger shot Monday, IUI Tuesday, and another IUI Wednesday). Did you request this or did your doc? If it was your doc, why was it recommended.
Thanks, Ladies! You're always so helpful!!!
