So, I took my trigger last Monday night.  I started testing the next day to test the hcg out of my system, but I never tested positive.  I know I ovulated, because I felt it happening.  So, can you just not test positive after the shot?  What does that mean for me if I get pregnant?  Would that mean that it would maybe take a higher level to show up in my urine? 


Everytime I turn around, my body is doing something weird in this process...

I would definitely say to get different pregnancy tests as the first step. You should definitely test positive after an hCG shot, ovulation or no.

I would try a different brand of tests. If they stay negative then I would think you got a bunk trigger shot. You could call your doc and see what they say.
