My dr says I have delayed ovulation (I ovulate usually on day 16-18) and because of this recommends Clomid w/hcg. I am all for it, but I don't understand how having delayed ovulation can prevent pregnancy. We have done 2 cycles of IUI up til this point. If there is a egg, and sperm, and they meet up, why would having the egg come later than what is considered normal keep conception from occuring? My dr said it has something to do with a cyst that forms around the ovum, but I do not understand. Please explain.
