I hope you don't mind me posting in here.
I'm doing my first cycle of timed intercourse with a trigger shot (Ovitrelle). I ovulate on my own (never earlier than CD18-22, occasionally CD 25 or 26), and I get pregnant easily, but all my pregnancies have ended in early losses. My doctor suggested doing a medicated cycle with Ovitrelle and then supporting with progesterone in the luteal phase.
On Thursday (CD14) I had an ultrasound which showed my follicle was 18mm and my lining was thick enough. I did the trigger shot on Friday (CD15) and got a positive pregnancy test a couple of hours later, so I know the HCG got into my system OK. My doctor said I should ovulate 24-36 hours after the shot, so between Saturday night and Sunday morning.
It's now Monday (CD18) and my temperatures yesterday and this morning were still low and suggested that I had not yet ovulated.
Does anybody know what the chances are of a trigger shot not working at all, or of ovulating with a few days' delay after a trigger shot?
I've spent today mining the internet in search of answers and some sources suggest that temping isn't accurate when you're doing a medicated cycle, but I'm not sure whether that's the case when the only medication you've taken is the trigger shot, or whether it's only when you are on other meds as well.
Would doing a progesterone blood test tomorrow morning give me a definitive answer? (I have a prescription.)
Any insight / experiences would be massively appreciated.

No ovulation after trigger shot?
