Question...how long do I have to wait after an HcG shot to test? It's been a while, so I forget. I picked up a pile of dollar store tests on Sunday and can't wait to start using them!

For those who remember- my father came and spent the whole weekend with me. It was WONDERFUL! I really like him and am so happy that we are talking. A little sad it took 30+ years to do so...but better late than never. I am very lucky.

That's great news about your dad's visit, Alicia! The safest bet is to wait the whole 14 days to get the trigger out of your system so you don't get a false positive.

I think the hCG is only in your system...but I'd wait until 14 days to test esp w/ the Dollar Tree.

That is great about meeting your father. I can't even imagine!!!

The hcg is usually out of my system 10 days after trigger. Try to hold back the urge for a few more days.

Good Luck!

When I got my BFP I tested at 12 days after the trigger shot and got a faint line on a First Response. The Dollar Tree tests never worked for me even when I got a pregnant on the digital I still didn't have a hint of a line on the Dollar Tree.
When I called my doctor about the faint line they said the hcg would be out of my system by then so they sent me for a beta. Try to wait until at least 12 dpiui.
 

That is so great about your father, and your right better late then never.
