  • I had by hgc trigger yesterday they said I have 1 follicle on the right at 20mm and several others on both that were close. I was was wondering if anyone else has been through this and what to expect. This is my first round.

  • Hi there Demerta!

    I've given myself an hCG trigger as part of my IUI's. Are you doing IUI or timed intercourse?

    It's all a bit of a rollercoaster isn't it (regardless of whether you're doing timed intercourse or IUI)? I know when my close friend did timed intercourse and had the hCG trigger her husband (at the time, they're no longer together) felt intense pressure to 'perform', and she felt that she'd been through a lot (clomid, transvaginal scans, and injections). Emotionally they were in very different places.

    Your follicle sounds a good size to contain a mature ovum, (in a natural cycle or Clomid cycle, mature follicle size is between 18 - 30 mm) and with others nearing that size it can only increase your chances!!

    Apart from giving myself a huge welt where I'd done the injection, I didn't have any side effects of the hCG.

    Wishing you lots of luck!!

    We are doing the timed intercorse and yes it is alot of pressure. We were joking about it last night with a friend, and we all agreed that it sucks the romance right out of it. But its for a good reason we can deal with no romace for a couple nights. Thank you for the good luck wishes I know this will be the longest two weeks of my life i'll spend all of it with my fingers crossed.

  • I wanted to say good luck for this cycle.

    For me I felt dizzy, light headed for about a day after the shot. I always wondered if I would have had terrible morning sickness. lol
