Trigger Shots (yes or no)

May 15, 2013 - 7 comments

Dr. called me today talking about the trigger shot. First, I would not mind multiples but I dont know what to do. I do have pcos and don't ovulate on my own. I want to but what are the chances?? Will the trigger shot cost more or is it included in my inferility fee Im already paying. I could not ask much cause this feels like its wearing me out. I don't know if I want another month of this and thats  why Im hoping it work this time!!! What do yal think about the trigger shot?

I don't think the trigger shot would increase your chance of multiples (that's determined by the number of mature follicles you have that would release eggs, which you may have more than one if you're taking clomid). The trigger just triggers however many mature follicles you do have to release eggs, just like they would if you didn't have PCOS and ovulated on your own. So I say absolutely for the trigger shot - another plus with that is you will have a much better idea of when ovulation will occur and can time intercourse accordingly :) I imagine you will have to pay for the shot, but I think it's worth it! Keep in mind though that if you get the shot, it will cause you to have positive pregnancy tests during your 2 week wait, which makes it difficult to tell if you're actually pregnant. I had a bunch of cheapies so I would take them daily starting at 8 dpo, and knew the cycle I got pregnant because it started getting darker rather than lighter around 10-11 dpo.

Ok I was wondering. Hopefully everything will work out. I also use cheapies and they workout all right.

trigger shot will only make you ovulate  will not increase the chance of multiples however clomid and other meds are what does . i have to pay 110.00 $ for a trigger shot extra  Im not sure what your plan includes . If you have the option then id do it will most likley make you o sooner than just on clomid alone :) Hope this is your month !!!
