How long does the HCG shot stay in your system?

Post by larisaM » Sat Mar 25, 2006 3:39 am

Hi all,
i was hoping to get bsome answers on how long the HCG horomone stays in your body after the HCG shot? I took the HCG shot on 3/11 it has been 13 days since then, I took a HPT that came out ++++++. I am very cousious and don't knoe if I should believe it. Could it still be the drugs? Am I relly pregnant? If anyone knows please respond to this e-mail it would really help me relax. Thank you! :?

I had a hcg shot on my 1st attempt on the day of ET and did a hpt test 14 days after that on instructions from my clinic. Mine showed a true positive. I cant remember what doseage it was though, but I'd of thought your result should be accurate. (dont quote me on that though)
Good luck, Hope its a true result

Larisa,

The HCG shot is definitely gone after 13 days. My doctor told me 2 days but 5 days at the worst after the shot has been given. I tested on my first 2 IVF's after 10 days and both times I was right when I got a +.

Congratulations. When's your official test?

Hi Larisa,

We are on the same schedule: trigger shot on 3/11. (Mine was an IVF cycle. Trigger was 10,000 units Novarel). I took an hpt this morning at 5am (could'nt sleep) and it was a faint positive. Since it's faint it could be the leftover trigger. So I am cautiously optimistic about it.

Larisa,

Was your embryos screened using PGD? If so that's fantastic. It means that your BFP will stick around and is extremely unlikely to miscarry. Wow lucky you. Enjoy every minute darling, you're BFP for sure.

Morning urine is stronger so you can well expect the hcg to be lower in the urine in the afternoon. Dont give up on your embies just yet :).

best wishes
