Trigger shots & hpt question

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I had my ovulation "trigger shot" nine days ago. It is simply an injection of hCG. Does anyone know how long it stays in your system? I don't want to test too early and get a false + hpt!!

If you had the 10,000 IU of hcg and no additional boosters it should take 10 days to be completely out of your system.

Thanks, Arduinna! I didn't get the whole bottle - I think she only gave me 5,000 units. But it's good to know - I'll try not to test before Weds. am!

Awwww, Aurora, that's so sweet! Thanks! It's hard to be optimistic when you're so afraid of disappointment. I'm trying, though!

Arduinna - Thanks again! I am still going to try to wait a couple more days before I test.

Kelly, I know it's hard to be optimistic.

When do you plan on testing? I am waiting till Thanksgiving. 14 dpo. Oh!!! It would be so neat to test + that day, but so bad to see the -. Although, it is always bad to see the - huh?

Lots of baby dust your way!!!

Thanks, y'all. I am going to try to wait to test until Wednesday morning, before I leave to drive up to NY for Thanksgiving. I don't know - if I get a - at home, I'll still be wondering if it's just too early. But if I waited until 14 dpo, while I'm out of town, I don't know how well I would handle it. Maybe having friends around would help. Although, they are all still childless by choice.: Of course, if AF comes while I'm there, I'll have no choice but to face it!! How strange to be packing HPT and tampons in my suitcase...:

I'll be anxious to find out how all the rest of you fare while I'm gone - not sure if I'll have computer access while I'm there. I am SO wishing +++++ for all of us - I feel like we've shared so much emotionally here with eachother. Sure is nice to have you with me, and hoping we will all stay together in that OTHER forum .
