Do I need to take Ovidrel (to induce ovulation) after I have been taking my Follistim shots or can I take Follistim alone without the Ovidrel?
Hi Lori, when I was going for my first cycle of IUI, I took Follistim but then I started ovulating on my own so I didn't have to take the ovidrel. Then for my IVF cycle I also took Follistim and then ovidrel to trigger ovulation. Your doctor should tell you when to take the ovidrel.
