Unsure: No. You can;t get pregnant if the eggs dont release. It is extremely rare to take that shot and not have the eggs release unless you take it incorrectly. So the bigger question is why you think the eggs did not release? You may not feel them release at all. And ultrasound is not helpful for that either.
