I had an IUI (that was supposed to be an IVF but after injections I produced only one good follicle and it was converted to an IUI). I am still waiting to see if it was successful but I went in for acupuncture today with a new person (who also had a medical degree and the acupuncture is next to the Shady Grove fertility clinic) and she told me that she is really suprised they didn't have me use progesterone inserts after the IUI. She says it's a good way to build the lining and that it is something that is done on a routine basis at Shady Grove after IVF and IUI (unless it's a natural cycle with no injections).
They did give me a bottle of vaginal progesterone pills in my med shipment but they did not tell me to use them. I asked if I needed to use the other meds early on and they just directed me to use the injections. The acupuncturist told me that I can take the inserts and that it won't hurt. I can't call the clinic this weekend (no nurses on call) and must wait until Monday. This is my last shot and I know I am late in the game here.
Did anyone else have this experience? Did you have an IUI or IVF (with injections) and no progesterone pill? Any thoughts on this?
I feel like my clinic might have just dropped the ball and I'm upset.
