Can ovidrel shot lead to a late period?

I had an Ovidrel shot on day CD 16.  At the OB/GYN office, the urine test on CD 21 was positive, but they did a blood test to check the quant level just to make sure it wasn?t chemical.  The quant level was low and when they re-tested a few days later, it decreased.  So, it was a chemical pregnancy.  I still have not gotten my period and I?m on CD 34. 

Is this normal? Can Ovidrel or the chemical pregnancy cause your period to be this many days late?  I?m waiting to schedule my next apt. with my doctor to start Clomid and am getting kind of anxious.  Thanks for any feedback!

  • If you triggered on CD16, a beta test at CD21 surely could still show the HCG from the shot. I'm guessing that's why it was positive and low - not a chemical pregnancy.

     

    Why did you do an Ovidrel shot? what treatment are you doing? What day did you ovulate?

  • I got the Ovidrel shot because my OB/GYN thinks that I may have mild PCOS based on my last few cycles she's been monitoring. (sometimes there are small cysts, sometimes not.  My periods have also been late, so she does not think I am ovulating on my own). She has me taking the Ovidrel to force the ovulation, so I am assuming I ovulated on CD 16 or 17 after the shot.  We've been trying for about 6 months now, so I am still trying to learn about everything!  I am supposed to start Clomid on my next cycle.  

    That does make sense about the HCG levels from the shot.  I'm not sure why she didn't explain that to me.

    I would move from your OBGYN to an RE. OBs are not trained to be doing that kind of treatment and if she really did a blood test and let you walk around thinking you'd had a c/p.. I'd be PISSED AS HELL!

  • If you took Ovidrel on CD16 you should ovulate approximately 36hours after trigger.  So most likely the HCG that was shown on CD21 was from the Ovidrel not a chemical pregnancy.  Being that you are on CD 34 have you taken a hpt?  If the hpt is negative wait until CD60 and then I would ask for provera to start your next cycle.  In my experience when I was cycling with Clomid/Femara and Ovidrel my luteal phase was a bit long than with out the meds, my cycle would be anywhere from 30-31 days instead of 28.  I don't know if it was the Ovidrel or other meds.

    Now a few other things, your OB only suspects you have PCOS?  How is she coming about this?  Have you had b/w along with the ultrasounds?  Have you had an HSG?  Has your husband had a SA?  All of these test should be done before starting Clomid.  Also if she suspects you have PCOS has she mentioned putting you on Metformin?  Lots of ladies with PCOS are put on Metformin to help.

    Lastly, I would recommend seeking out a RE.  RE's are in the business of getting you pregnant while OB's are in the business of delivering babies.  Even if they have a specialty in fertility they have not had as much training as a RE.  Also if you are going to take Clomid with this OB please make sure they are going to properly monitor you with b/w and u/s.  You should be having a u/s on day 3 to make sure you have no cysts and then another u/s some where around CD10-12 usually to check and see the size of the follicles to be able to pinpoint ovulation and when to take a trigger shot.  GL

  • Thank you so much for your recommendations!  The person I'm working with is the fertility specialist at the OB/GYN's office, but I guess that is different from an RE. I have been doing b/w and ultrasounds (day 3, 10, and usually again around 14 and 16 since my follicles are never big enough on day 10). She said she is pretty sure I have PCOS because of the late ovulation and some cycles there are signs of cysts, but now it sounds like that is not a very solid diagnosis! thought I knew what I was talking about, but now i feel as if I'm not getting very good information. 

    I will for sure look into seeking out an RE. Thanks for the suggestions.  It's been a frustrating process and I've been trying to do my research, but feel I need more explanation.
