We just had our first IUI cycle: letrozole D 3-7, ultrasound D11, trigger D12 and IUI the morning of D14. I am now 8dpiui and am still getting faint positives on my Internet cheapy pregnancy tests from the trigger. Can you chime in on how long it took for the trigger to leave your system? TIA!
DH 31 Me 29 Married since July 2009 Actively TTC#1 since May, 2011
April and May 2012 - Letrozole 7.5 mg CD3-7 trigger and timed intercourse. BFN
June and July 2012 - Letrozole 12.5 mg CD3-7 w/trigger and IUI. BFN
Oct 2012 - Diagnosed with stage I endo. Removed with laparoscopy.
Nov 2012 - Letrozole 12.5 mg days 3-7, follistim days 11-13. Trigger w/IUI = BFP!!! Beta 14dpiui = 132, 18dpiui = 844. Doubling time of 35 hours! E.D.D 8.15.13 Missed miscarriage at 9w5d. Baby only measuring 8w3d.
March 2013 - Letrozole 12.5mg days 3-7, follistim days 8-10. Trigger w/IUI. BFN
April 2013 - Hysteroscopy to remove placental tissue and scarring.
May 2013 - Surprise BFP! Beta 14dpo = 108. 17 dpo = 475. Stick, baby!
"When you are going through difficulty and wonder where God is, remember the teacher is always quiet during the test."
My triggers are out by 8-10 dpo (so 10-12 dp trigger).
My triggers have usually been gone after 8-10 days. I typically use dollar store tests to test out my trigger and then use First Response to confirm if I get a BFP past 9-10 dpo when I'm sure the trigger is gone. Good luck! The 2 WW is so hard.
