Negative OPK after Hcg trigger shot? Worried....

I took my hcg trigger shot at 8pm last night, for my IUI on Wed morning.  I just took an OPK and it was negative.  Barely a faint line.  I expected to see a stronger line.  I have tested w/ opk's before, after taking a trigger shot, and they were darker than this.  I'm a bit worried it didn't work, although I know that's rare.  Has anyone else gotten a negative opk after taking the trigger shot?

  • I think this is why my clinic tells me to stop the OPK's once I do the trigger. I am sure you are fine. Were you monitored with u/s & b/w?

  • I took an hpt when I got home (two actually!) and they were both very positive, so I'm sure the trigger is in my system now.  I'm guessing since the OPK tests pick up LH, that they're not quite as sensitive to the hcg.   Hopefully the eggs are getting ready to pop tomorrow morning :)  And, yes, I was monitored w/ u/s so we knew it was time to trigger.  Thanks for the reassurance! :)
