how.long after a trigger shot do you test?


I got a trigger shot at 11am Tuesday the 11th and I took a pregnancy test at midnight tonight...came back dark and positive...could this be false? How many days do you wait? And how many of you have got false positives within 3-4 days of getting the shot?

The trigger shot is basically hCG and it takes 10 days for it leave your body. You ovulate 36 hours after the shot so you will have ovulated 11pm on the 12th. My Fertility Specialist recommends testing no sooner than 14 days after the trigger (25th for you) but some like to wait for 16 days after the trigger.

Any test taken within 10 days of the shot is going to give you a false positive.

Implantation takes 6-12 days to occur, it then takes a further 3-4 days for a hCG to appear on a blood test and an additional 1-2 days for it to appear on a HPT. A positive result won't show up till 10DPO at the earliest which will be 11-12 days after the trigger. Giving all the hCG from the shot chance to leave your body.

I figured it was false I was like it takes awhile for it to process...so it couldn't have a positive yet. Thanks for answering.

Not a problem. Hopefully you'll get a true soon.

Princess is right. This is my first IUI round and my RE said that once we do the hCG trigger we need to count a minimum of 12 days before we test. For some women the hCG clears in as little as 3-4 day, but for other women it can hang around for up to a week and a half. Because of this, there's no way to reliably test until a minimum of 12 days past injection. If you have a quick implantation, it is possible to get a true BFP as early as 7dpo, but since you already have hCG in your system from the trigger, it is impossible to tell what's real and what's not.

My RE recommends waiting until 14-16 dpiui to test, so that if you implanted late you don't get a false negative and get needlessly stressed. Of course, my poas-addicted-self will be starting with the daily FRER's as soon as the 12 day wait is over. I'm such a junkie!
