Hey Ladies,


This cycle my RE wants to prescribe HCG injections to support the luteal phase. I have a shortish LP (9-10 days) with lots of spotting. Just wondering if anyone else has tried it. I know typically progesterone is the drug of choice for this situation, but my RE really wants to try HCG. Thoughts? Thanks!

This time last year we were going through our fertility treatments. I consistently ovulated on day 10 but with meds we pushed it back to day 12 and did an IUI. Our Dr. had me take HCG injections a few times after the IUI and it worked!
