Straightforward question : for those of you who had one, how did you react to the trigger shot?

Very unusal for me, I triggered last Friday at 11 pm. 5 and 6 days later, I am REALLY energized. Days at work are crazy but I am feeling relaxed, positive, I have high energy and even lost weight?! For the last cycles, I was all the contrary : depressed, anxious, super tired and bloated. I am feeling quite a bit of heartburn and nauseous though.
The TWW is so confusing. lol

Welcome sunshine! :)
Take care!


Hi geeky_gab,

After the trigger shot for me I felt like AF was right around the corner (bleh!), low back pain, cramps, tired most of the time. Crying at TV shows that I've already seen....

Maybe you're just in a really great mindset!

Hi Ladies,
Wow, this thread has gone quite calm...
MABM thanks for your reply.. yeah I'm trying to keep calm this time, but stopping tracking symptoms is hard.
Are you having or have you had an IUI lately?

I went to the obgyn today, to get another protocol. If this round hasn't worked (I'm on 10 dpo and no longer have symptoms, although my bbt is high and I have heartburn) I'll be ready to go with a round of Femara+Menopur to get more follies.

I really hope that all of you are well. Take care

Good luck SaraElise!

I tested yesterday, 13 days after the trigger shot and got a solid positive with a FRER... those tests are really sensitive because I tried again with a cheapie and BFN, even this morning.

12 dpo and 14 days after trigger, I am confused and impatient. I thought I wouldn't see traces of the trigger 13 days after since I had never tested positive this later in my cycle after the trigger... I must have the metabolism of a slug :(

Hope everyone is well

Hi August IUIers.

8 DPO for me. I don't feel any different than I normally do. This TWW is sooooo frustrating! Did anyone have any signs after their IUI that it might have worked?

I cramped from the time I had my iui until the day I got my BFP. I knew I was pregnant because I normally don't cramp at all. And it wasn't like AF cramps, more like pinching and pulling and my boobs hurt so bad I couldn't touch them.

So, apparently, it was still the trigger shot :(
Today's FRER came back negative...
Now waiting for AF

3rd iui is done. DHs count was amazing. 56 million and motility and everything else was way above normal. The nurse said everything was perfect. This was by far the best one I've had. My first two were extremely uncomfortable and I cramped horribly after. I didn't feel a thing with this one and I have no cramps at all!!
