Not sure it matters: I'm not a reproductive endocrinologist but the HCG is generally a boosterbtobassist ovulation. Did u ovulate? How did uncheck it, upt? I've never heard anyone checking that level. People in your situation can be under a lot of stress; anxiety and depression increase in infertility patients. I don't think it matters how long it's around, if u ovulated your fine. Sometimes IUI takes several attem. ...Read more

Will IUI work even with out releasing eggs? I had two matured follicals each right & left side. After hCG shot 10000, eggs didn't release in36 hours.

Unsure: No. You can;t get pregnant if the eggs don't 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. ...Read more

Around 18, midcycle: A mature follicle is around 18 mm but may not release until about 26 mm. It is normal to have a mature follicle somewhere between days 11 and 14 though it can take longer. Your doc will not instruct you to take the HCG until at least one follicle is mature. ...Read more

Had temp rise on unmedicated cycles. Didn't 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

Could I be pregnant or is it a false pregnancy? I had hCG shot and now my test is slightly positive.

IUI: An HCG shot is usually given 24-48 hours after IUI. However, your follicle should have been bigger before the IUI to begin with. Usually IUI is best done when you have a positive LH surge. A follicle size of at least 3.0 cm is encouraging. ...Read more
