Again, it seems that Ovidrel failed to trigger me properly. Friday I had two follicles, one 16mm and one 19m. That evening, I had a positive pee stick LH surge and took Ovidrel on top of my own endogenous surge. This morning, the follicles are intact on ultrasound, measuring 20mm and 23mm. Bloods showed that I "ovulated" or luteinized and started producing progesterone, so the eggs are finished if they were not fertilized. Another cycle down the tubes.
I got on google and apparently this a problem with lots of people, anecdotally, of course, but out there in cyberspace, especially for women who are overweight. Some IVF centres give patients 2 ovidrels so they will be sure to trigger. (I'm not overweight but Check thought that I have a problem releasing in my intake appointment).
If Check's office wasn't so fussy about checking for egg release, I'd never know. I wonder how many people are out there doing IUIs trusting that eggs released.
So if you use Ovidrel, I'd check for release just in case a few days later. You want to know that the eggs did actually pop out of the follicles or else there is no chance that sperm meets egg.

i actually prefer ovidrel because i can feel myself ovulate precisely 24 hours after the shot. i think that was part of the problem when i was younger; my ov's wouldn't wait the allotted 36 hours so my iui's were always too late.
i'm so sorry to hear this has happened to you. so your follicles didn't release? that means the chemistry is so off now that even if they do now they are no good? how frustrating!

yes it is frustrating, particularly since my dominant follicle was from the left - the ovary without the endometrioma, for a change.
However, the good news is that now I know - don't use Ovidrel! Also, it is good to know that it is useful after all checking for egg release. I used to think it was excessive.
I just worry because there are lots of people who get IUIs, trigger with Ovidrel, and probably don't check for release afterward.
