I know I'm not on to IVF yet, but it might happen in the future. I have a question though about injectibles and trigger shots.
If I do injectibles and I get a few folicles in each ovary that are ripe - if I let myself ovulate on my own, will only one "pop"? That's what I understand normally happens during your cycle, many eggs start producing but the natural LH surge causes the most ripe one to burst and the rest get reabsorbed?
But, if I use a trigger shot, will that trigger all the potentially ripe eggs to burst?
I just found out with my Lap/HSG last month that my right tube is blocked. I also have a complex cyst on my left that keeps coming back and reacting to my extremely high levels of estrogen. I'm pretty sure my right ovary is dominant as it seems to be the one always producing eggs when I've been through any cycle monitoring.
I'm still trying to decide whether I will do injectibles or not. I know they aren't the same as clomid but I'm worried about the high estrogen again and no eggs like last time (it just caused the cyst to grow a bunch but no egg).
On a side note - if my left ovary doesn't work and the RE can prove it, and with my right tube blocked, I *may* be eligible for provincially funded IVF. Usually it's with two blocked tubes only, but they do consider any case that might be applicable.
