Hi doctor, Does hcg shot delay the actual ovulation.say if im about to ovulate in another 8hrs.if i take the shot,does ovulation switch to 24-36 hrs?

Studies of women who: ...had recent miscarriages have found that they can ovulate & conceive during their next cycle even if they still have (+) blood tests for HCG. This suggests that HCG does NOT interfere with spontaneous ovulation. However, without knowing more about you, I can't advise you on the timing of sexual intercourse or IUI. It's a good question! Please ask your fertility specialist. Dr. Anne. ...Read more

Over year ttc with Clomid (clomiphene) and hCG shot! Ovulated twice but no pregnancy! Think sperm not getting there coz of my cm! What do I do now????

Partner checked yet?: Hopefully your male partner/husband has had a sperm analysis done as 40 to 45% of all infertility problems are male derived. I am assuming your are doing Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) and not IVF that fertilizes the ovum outside of the uterus and re-implants it. ...Read more

Ovulation: I assume that you are needing this fertility medications because you do not ovulate consistently. If you are not ovulating then one does not expect to have regular predictable menstrual cycles therefore it is not possible to predict when the next cycle will come. The next step is to contact the fertility specialist and begin planning the next treatment cycle. ...Read more

I had a hCG trigger shot 3 days ago for a 20.5mm egg. But my BBT still hasn't risen. Is this normal? Does it mean i haven't ovulated?

I had a hCG trigger shot 3 days ago for a 20.5mm egg. But my BBT still hasn't risen. Is this normal? Does it mean i haven't ovulated?

Not necessarily: Bbts are notoriously unreliable and most fertility docs no longer use them. They must be done properly and even then may not show a rise. Even if there is a rise, it still could take a few more days to show up. ...Read more

Does an hCG trigger shot cause a false positive ovulation prediction kit result? I have had a positive OPK for 5 days since my hCG trigger.

Does an hCG trigger shot cause a false positive ovulation prediction kit result? I have had a positive OPK for 5 days since my hCG trigger.

Yes: Ovulation prediction kits measure luteinizing hormone (lh), looking for the lh surge that triggers ovulation. Hcg is nearly identical to lh (which is why you are using it to stimulate ovulation!). There is no point in using an ovulation prediction kit if you are taking HCG shots. Ovulation typically occurs 36 hours after the HCG trigger. ...Read more

Had temp rise on unmedicated cycles. didnt do opk. thought hCG shot would give a + anyway. taking progesteron since 2.5dp shot 3 days now no temp rise?

Clarifying: OPK signals ovulation by detecting the hormones estrogen & LH which are high right before ovulation. It doesn't detect the presence of HCG, although a typical pregnancy test will do so. Progesterone won't help you conceive. Although it helps to maintain an early pregnancy once you've conceived and will set the stage for a menstrual period if you haven't, it actual inhibits ovulation. ...Read more
