I've done a trigger shot 3 or 4 times so far and the only side effect I noticed was being sore at the injection site for a few days. Don't worry, I'm sure everything is working just fine

The trigger shot is HCG which is the pregnancy hormone. I was told that it mimics pregnancy symptoms to some degree. I have had it 6 times now. I usually feel nauseaus and get a migraine after mine.

Best of luck!

Soreness at injection site was my only symptom that I paid attention too. I agree about mimicing pregnancy symptoms though. I'm usually sensitive to HCG, hits my other post re: progesterone. The trigger should be out of my system by now, and I can test Friday. I don't recall having any significant pregnancy-like symptoms.

I am 5 days post trigger and I am still reeeaaalllly bloated- it's really uncomfortable, but worth it! Other than that I don't really get any other symptoms either.

I got pretty bloated, had soreness/rash around the injection site, and was VERY tired. This all only lasted a couple of days!

no side effects but just dont test until you are at least 10-11 days past trigger, as it will be positive no matter what
