Yes: Stop the shots! . Remember that one half of drug you inject yourself with is removed each 28 hours and so for accurate result to see if you are pregnant, you should wait at least 14 days . Thereafter, in a successful pregnancy, the HCG value will double every 72 hours. For the next few weeks.. An ultrasound is also helpful.

Yes: You need to stop injections and check after 5 days.
