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.

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.
