Talk to MD: Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is used to initiate ovulation, which occurs in 36-44 hr after the injection. Timing may be off schedule if the dose is missed, so follow up with your doctor.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

What treatment?: Calling the doctor who prescribed it for you is always my #1 recommendation. The answer depends on why you take it - ovulation trigger in fertility treatments or ivf? Serial doses for luteal support? If you care to be more specific, i may be able to help more - but if this is an ongoing treatment contact your doctor before looking further here.
