I had an hsg trigger 9 days ago and I have been feeling a little queezy the last couple days. I tested today and got a faint positive in about 10 minutes. I'm wondering if it was from the HSG or if there's a good chance it's the real deal???? Thanks

I think I remember reading the triggers stay in your system for up to 12 days. You might want to just wait 4 more days and then test again. That's why dr.s tell you to wail the full 2 weeks. Your symptoms sound promising though, good luck!

there is a chance that it could still be the trigger shot. it deoends on the dose that they gave you and how fast your body gets it out of your system. i asked my dr how long it would stay in my system and he told me that it was like lh when you are using opk's lh only shows up for a few days, but if you had a higher dose or your body is slow about getting it out of your system then it may take longer. everyone is different. i say wait a few days and test again if it is the real thing then the + should get darker on the hpt. good luck

i agree- could be the trigger. i believe the rule is to wait at least 10 days for it to leave your system. i would wait another 2-3 days before testing again. i konw some ladies test very early to see the HCG positive, then test until they get a negative to know the HCG is gone. then that way they know it is gone and anythign after that should be 'real' result. good luck though!

It can remain positive up to 14 days after the trigger. . Also alot of fertility meds simulate pregnancy signs. Good luck to you.

Thanks to everyone! Does clomid simulate pregnancy signs during the 2ww?


slowpoke01 - November 22

amy i dont remember having pregnancy signs while i was taking clomid. it just made me have hot flashes and be tired and thats it. i know the trigger shot gives you pregnancy signs like sore boobs and everything.


Amysince70 - November 22

Yeah, I have heard that but the strange thing is....I usually get sore boobs right after I ovulate for about 2 weeks and this time my boobs aren't the least bit sore. I had my progesterone checked on Monday and it was 23. So I'm starting to wonder? I tested again today (I'm addicted) and I still got the same faint positive...Today is 10 days past trigger and 9 past ovulation. Ahhh....The suspense is killing me!


Tink - November 22

the rule usually is not to test until 10 days past ovulation, i believe. i would still keep testing. i got symtoms with both clomid, follistim and the trigger (ovidrel). i had my hopes up twice and was dashed. i hope it is much different for you. i would still wait until 14DPO and only take that test as a positive. good luck

Amy, I have had trigger shots the last three cycles and I always tested at 9-10 days post ovulation and never got even a hint of HCG to bring up a positive. Although I have to agree with the other ladies, maybe your body is still carrying it, I can equally say that I personally believe that you might actually be pregnant. Especially since you tested it again and it keeps coming up right away. Your progesterone levels sounded healthy....so that is great news. I don't want anyone to think I am 'getting your hopes up' but I personally think,based on my experience with the HCG and HPT myself, it likely happend for you !! Good luck....


Amysince70 - November 22

Thanks! I know you're not getting my hopes up, I appreciate you sharing your experience! I called the nurse today and she said that she doubts that it's left over since I had the trigger 10 days ago and she wants me to come in on Friday instead of Monday for a blood test. So I will know in two more days. The one thing that concerns me is that the nurse said I was injected with 10,000 units, which I have read taked 10-14 days to leave your system...AND I am only 5'1 and 105 lbs. So again, it could go either way. I just feel a little different this time, though. Let's hope the HSG / CLOMID / HCG / IUI / Preseed/ Magic sperm pills worked this time! I'm 36 and we have been trying for almost 2 years.


linds99 - November 22

Gosh, that is great news...let's hope it gets better today! And then you and DH really will have something to be thankful for tomorrow!

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you are all relaxing and enjoying your turkey as opposed to obsessing over a line on a pregnancy test like me! Well, I took another one today (my last one before the blood test tomorrow) and while it was still a faint faint positive, I swear it's even lighter than yesterday. Today was day 12 so the trigger might just be leaving my system now. I'm starting to feel like I might just have PMS. I'm wondering if the clomid is making me PMS mpre than usual, too.


ROBYN - November 24

Amy Clomid definitely gives you some side effects also when adding the HCG it also can give fake pregnancy symptoms. So I completely understand what your feeling and have been thru. Just give it a few more days and the hcg should be completely out of your system then try and test again. Good luck.


Amysince70 - November 24

Well, I got my blood test back today and I am pregnant....But my hcg levels are so low that they are afraid it's not a normal pregnancy. She said it's either abnormal or just too soon. They were only testing me this early because I have had a faint faint positive since 8 dpo. Also, the doc at the fertility clinic said there is no way it's from the trigger...Said I was pregnant for sure. Now, it still is very early (12 dp Trigger, 11 days past O)...So I'm wondering if anyone knows what is a good healthy hcg level for this time? What a bummer. Also, my boobs just started getting sore 2 days ago...Could that mean implantation happend later? Wouldn't that make my hcg level lower?
