Triggered and question about meds!

Hey ladies! I just triggered tonight at 9pm! We did a different trigger tonight than last cycle to help avoid getting OHSS, Lupron and norval (sp). I need to take another Lupron shot tomorrow morning at 9am. I feel so much better this time around and my estrogen levels are lower than last time too! My doctor said so far she thinks we can most likely do the fresh transfer as long as I continue to feel well after the retrieval. ER is Wednesday at 9am!! My question is does Lupron and novarl (sp) contain Hcg in it too like ovidrel where it can be detected with an hpt?

    Wow, that seemed fast that you are almost at ER already!! GL:-)

    Yes, novarel is HCG and will definitely turn a stick positive. It's 10000iu (versus ovidrel at 250mcg) so it will stick around way longer than ovidrel. I had it stick around once until 9dp3dt. It sucked because I thought it might be the real thing. It wasn't... 

    Lupron does not turn a pee stick pos.

  • Yes if you are only taking 1/2 of the noveral you are only using 5000 units.

    Everyone metabolizes the trigger differently. Mine was always out by 7 days past trigger. If you are asking because you are thinking of poas before beta I suggest testing once daily with FMU starting day after transfer. That way you can see your line disappear to know trigger is out

    TTC#1 since April 2011

  • Ive triggered w just novarel, both the 5000 and 10000 units doses depending how the cycle was going. I want to say the longest it stuck around was 8dp trigger but I didn't test out the last one.
