    Hello

    Hi all i have done my 2nd iui today (13th day) my follicle size was 17 and 10 mm on left ovary and my husbands semem has 75% motality,nurse gave me an hcg injection of 10000 units on 11th day.

    After IUI today she prescribed me with again hcg injections of 2000 units on 2dpiui,5dpiui and 7dpiui

    My query is ...is it safe to take and for what it is given even after ovulation??
    I read on net that it take a week to go 10000 units and can give false positive if hpt is done early ......so if i take another injection would it give me a false positive plss help...

    @ vldelhi,

    Improved pregnancy rate with administration of hCG after intrauterine insemination: a pilot study

    Background

    In natural cycles, women conceive when intercourse takes place during a six-day period ending on the day of ovulation. The current practice in intrauterine insemination (IUI) cycles is to perform the IUI 24-36 hours after the hCG administration, when the ovulation is already imminent. In this study hCG was administered after the IUI, which more closely resembles the fertilisation process in natural cycles.
    Methods
    All the IUIs performed since the beginning of 2007 were analysed retrospectively. Our standard protocol has been to perform the IUI 24-32 hours after hCG administration. From the end of 2008, we started to inject hCG after the IUI at random. The main outcome measure was the result of a urinary pregnancy test. Generalized Estimating Equations (GEE) was used to identify independent factors affecting the cycle outcome.

    Results

    The analysis included 228 cycles with hCG administered before and 104 cycles hCG administered after the IUI. The pregnancy rates were 10.9% and 19.6% (P = 0.040), respectively. Independent factors (OR, 95% CI) affecting the cycle outcome were sperm count (2.65, 1.20-5.81), number of follicles > 16 mm at IUI (2.01, 1.07-3.81) and the time of hCG administration (2.21, 1.16-4.19).

    Conclusion

    Improved pregnancy rate was observed with administration of hCG after IUI.

    yes in some cases they do follow this protocol of hcg post iui,it is definitely to increase chances of pregnancy n dont bother abt hpt n false positive, if positive they do multiple beta test to check the values ... and the doc wud know the range .. dont think too much abt it

    Hi VL Delhi,
    Only problem with this strategy is that you can't test your pregnancy until 15 days of last hCG shot! Hope this cycle will bring good luck to you!
    All the best!
