Secondary IF

Out of curiosity...

How many of you ladies test out your trigger? Part of me is saying to just be patient and wait until my Re told me to test, and the other part wants to test it out. I'm guessing if you do test it out that you use cheapies and not digital? (stupid question, I know) :) When do you start testing? Thanks!

  • I have before but didn't this time and wish I did! Before I started 7dp trigger and it was gone twice by 9dp trigger. Mine are 250mcg ovidrel. I'm now 12dp trigger with faint bfps and driving myself crazy. So I say test it out! And yep, cheapies for sure :

  • I would. I didn't on our last cycle and I had a faint bfp 13dpiui. Turns out it was the trigger. I was just one of the very few who still had the hcg in my system that late. I would either test it out or wait for your beta. It will save you some serious heartache.
