This may officially be the stupidest question ever asked here & i'm prepared to take that title if you ladies can put my mind at ease....

It's been 25 hours since I took the trigger shot, which is the first shot i've ever given myself after quick demo by nurse....and my OPKs are still negative Shouldn't the hcg have hit my system by now & come out in urine test?

I'm worried that somehow, inexplicably, i managed to screw up giving myself the shot

How many units was your trigger? I always gave myself the triggers at night and woke up to a BFP, but I know others on our board have had it take a full day or two.

update: i broke down and used the one & only FRER in the house. It is faintly positive - which makes me feel better - but I guess I expected it to be really positive & then fade over the next week? This is so faint, I would imagine in 1-2 days there'd be nothing visible at all unless i'm still absorbing it into my system.

250 mcg is a really small trigger, so it's not going to be as obvious as some others. I use a 10,000 IU trigger.

here's hoping it was big enough to get the job done then....i guess this explains why RE said it would be out of my system in 7 days, sounds like it's a tiny trigger

Yep, I always did the 10,000 unit trigger as well...I bet yours is doing exactly what it is supposed to

that will probably be out of your system even faster than that, mine was 10,000 also (it took 9 days to get out)...are they doing a followup U/S or just doing the IUI when you go in?

No follow up appts unless either i get pregnant or next cycle starts. We're not doing IUI...this is an odd thing to say here, but we haven't really had an issue getting pregnant, it's staying pregnant that challenges us. I really went to RE for gameplan b/c of testing positive for Factor II. RE considers that more of a threat to 2nd/3rd trimester, although he can't rule it out as a cause of my losses, and thinks they may be tied to progesterone issue instead (and/or just random/age-related) and my natural progesterone level when they tested last cycle did come back slightly low. RE also felt I could also benefit from Clomid & trigger shot to help hormone levels, but so far no reason to think we need IUI, although we're leaving all avenues open....just working through some of these initial cycles to see what RE thinks next step should be (assuming we don't get pregnant)

That's the same trigger (Ovidrel 250) that I used when I conceived my DD. Good luck!

I just used that same size trigger. I haven't used an hpt yet to check it (actually ran out of them for the first time in a year! lol), but as far as I have read elsewhere too it is a smaller trigger. I'll be testing tomorrow am (little over 3 days past trigger), so I'll let you know what it looks like.
