Can someone exlain this? What is it and how will it take the guess work out of ovulation? I saw that someone said this in the last thread. See, I always seem to O on the weekend, so I have to have all sorts of people who are on call to help me get an IUI. If I could change my cycle to be on a week day this would save me & these people on call a lot of stress. Please tell me how many times you need this shot, side effects, what it actually does and whatever else you can tell me.

the hcg shot is only given once when y ou are ready to ovulate. i believe it induces the ovulation process but only when your body is getting ready on its own.

I'm sorry Vanessa..I think I wrote that it took the guess work out of ovulation..but, "J" is right, you have to monitored by a fertility specialist who will do a vaginal u/s to see if your folicles and body are ready for ovulation..As far as the timing..it is great to use when you are doing IUI, because you can time the shot w/ your appointment so that the insemination takes place at the best time! Hope this helps!
