: 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.
: Thanks,

Dawn, I dont have an answer to your question but I just wanted you to know that I am also a late ovulator and I've never been told it was a problem -- though I've sensed it was. I really hope one of the doctors answers your question because I really want to understand too!

If they dont, try posting again!
