IUI timing... blood tests and OPK

Postby newandanxious » Mon Apr 23, 2018 5:01 pm

I’ve been lurking these boards for a while but have finally decided to post because I’ve been driving myself crazy. It will be my second iui tomorrow and I’m concerned about timing. I went for a blood test this morning at 7am to test for LH surge. I then took an ovulation test (clear blue) shortly after which was negative. Around 1:30pm my clinic called me to tell me I was surging (lh was 37.4). I then took another ovulation test which came back positive. The clinic has scheduled me for my iui tomorrow at 1:30pm. I read somewhere that the lh surge usually begins overnight and not in the morning, which would be I should ovulate very soon and likely the iui will be too late... what do you guys think? I really just want to get this timing right. I have no known fertility issues (just lack of sperm) and using donor sperm. I would love stories and input from anyone.. thank you!

I hope someone else with more experience can help you with this but from what I know that is how all doctors do the iui,the day after the surge.Ovulation doesn’t even happen until 12-36h after the surge so I think ur good!!
