Missionary position, and remain on your back for an hour. Good luck!

How was the shot? My bum was in pain for a week, but then, I had been having shots of fertility meds twice a day in the bum the 7 days prior.

I hope it works im so excited but I dont want to get my hopes up too far to have them dashed!!!! Thanks thanks!!

that's awesome that clomid gave you three eggs. were you ovulating at all before? I was prior to taking clomid, but after I had surgery to remove endometriosis my fertility specialist put me on the standard dose of clomid (50mg) so that I would hopefully ovulate two eggs. She did not monitor me at all, though, and I'm pretty sure it didn't work any of the 5 cycles I was on the standard dose of clomid, because the standard dose of injection drugs which was supposed to produce 10 to 20 eggs, only produced 3 for me. We timed an IUI, but not to dash your hopes, still didn't conceive. I definetly think there is something else wrong with me, but they cannot figure it out. Best of luck! I'm crossing my fingers for you!

Oh thank you so much for your wishes!! In may i had surgery to remove a fibroid, and in August I had surgery to remove a *septum* (strange word)..I am not sure if i was ovulating before or not recently, because we were trying to get rid of all the other problems. Ive had 3 ectopics and 1 ruptured ectopic in past 10 years. with no kids. I am 37 and READY! Last month iwas on 100mg chlomid, but i didnt get the trigger cuz my right ovary (which is only one i can use) didnt have any follies at all!! SO i was pleased to see 3 this time.. if u can imagine! Wow those drugs you were on were supposed to produce 10-20 eggs!!! That sounds insane!! I hope doing the bd will be enough!! DH has 3 kids of his own, i have NONE!!! I hope they figure out what the problem is with you, so nerveracking to keep trying and trying... to no avail!!

I too had a uterine septum removed in october, when I had my endometriosis removed. My septum took up like 90% of my uterus. I was hoping that that was the cause of my infertility, but my surgery was a year and two days ago, and still nothing.

I was on drugs for IVF, but we called if off since we only got 3 eggs. The doc would have only placed 3 embryos in my uterus, so that's not so insane, but still pretty insane! We would have frozen the rest for future IVF cycles.

We're just going to keep BDing, which is much more fun and less stressful, so hopefully it works.

Well i wish you the best of luck, some people just dont know how lucky they are! I was hoping the septum was my problem too, but since its not been but since august, I can have a few more months of going on just trigger and chlomid. I certainly am in no financial position to afford IVF as of yet!!! So expensive!!!!

Well, we were supposed to BD yesterday morning between the hours of 5am - 10 am.... didnt get to BD til this morning. I wonder how long the eggs last once ovulated .. is today too late for possible conception>? Does anyone know? I am so bummed about not being able to BD yesterday. I dont tell him because he doesnt like *planned* BDing... and then i do tell him and he feels like he has to perform... sigh... Im soooo bummed.. I wonder and hope and pray that this mornign wasnt too late.

Once released, each egg is capable of being fertilized for 12 to 48 hours before it begins to disintegrate so you may just get lucky!
