Ovidrel trigger shot experiences please


Hello everyone I'm interested to see what experiences and effects women have had using the Ovidrel trigger shot.
I had my Ovidrel trigger shot on 3-12 and two back to back IUI's on 3-13 and 3-14. This was after 7 days of using Gonal F starting at 220 then lowered to 150 after bloodwork showed a rapid response at the higher dose. ( this is my first cycle with IUI)

My effects from the Ovidrel started on 3-14 with my second IUI, I have had cramps (period like) and very tender breasts since that day. The cramps today have lessened to little twinges but breasts are still very tender and large. I have to go for my pregnancy test on the 28th

Lots of :dust : to all you wonderful women!!

Hello,

The ovidrel shot will give you the pregnancy systoms. I've used them twice and they have given me side effects like, twinges and tender breast. It can also give you a false positive if is still in your system and you take a test.

Good luck!

Oh no Tomorrow will be 10 days since the trigger shot so I'm kind of keeping my fingers crossed...hoping that my period doesn't come before the 28th with my blood test.

Same for me. I've had one IUI (2/24) and was convinced it took, but looking back on it, my symptoms must have been due to the trigger shot. On to IUI#2 next week. Good luck to you!

Thanks! It was just as much of a pain in the rear yesterday as it was the first time. The nurse had a heck of a time trying to get the speculum into my cervix and never was able to do it. During the process of trying, she hurt me so that I jumped pretty good. She ended up having to go get the MD. He was able to do it, but not easily. He said if I need another one next month I have to get on the MD list for it and have a full bladder at the time of IUI. Great, that sounds comfortable. I'm hoping and praying that it takes this month so I don't have to go through that again!

Happy Hump Day everyone!

Hi Casper
I just started my 2nd cycle for IUI. I was convinced the first one took as well all pregnancy signs...but definitely was the trigger shot. Last night was the first night for my Gonal F, have to go back to RE on Friday for more bw and u/s and if it's like last cycle I'll probably be back for the same monitoring almost everyday until the IUI itself. I had spotting after the 2nd IUI and from that day on cramps and sore boobs. Nausea kicked in about a week after that..which is what convinced me that it took. I hope that you don't have get another cycle next month that this is your month!! Good luck with this cycle lots of to you

Hello There ladies, seems like I am also in the same boat as you all. I took the Ovidrel shot on 4/11 and IUI on 4/13. I developed all kinds of pg symptoms within 3-4 days after IUI. Cramping with occasional pulling and pinching in my lower abdomen, fatigue, fatigue and fatigue, metal taste in the mouth, back pain and my legs hurt, disturbed sleep and vivid dreams until a couple of days back (thats basically till the Ovidrel was in my system). But now all the symptoms are gone and I only have what it seems like The big fat red lady may show up anytime. Looking at all the symptoms, I was really happy thinking it worked this time (IUI #3). Only to see -Ve on the stick today. I will wait till saturday to take the test again. keeping my fingers crossed.

Casper, I too had the same experience as you did with the IUI procedure. The NP had to use 3 different kinds of catheter and finally she had to call the Dr to do the job. I also remembering jumping almost off the bed once. I hope we both (or any women) had to go through this torture ever again.

The whole procedure is just so stressful.

Baby dust to all.
