Testing Out the Ovidrel Trigger

I debated on whether to "test out the trigger" this time around.  This is where you essentially POAS after the ovulation trigger shot (mine is Ovidrel, see photo below, but Novarel is very common as well) to see if it's "gone" from your system.  You can do this daily starting at 1 DP (day{s} past) the shot or just pick a day to start, like 7 DP trigger or so. 

Since the trigger shot is pure HCG (the pregnancy hormone), you will show positive on an HPT (home pregnancy test) for about 6-10 days after you take it (some women take even longer, though!).  The longest it's ever remained in my system was 10 days, but the past few cycles, it's been gone by 7 DP trigger.

So, I went ahead and tested today with one of my extra-sensitive early pregnancy tests.  It was gone!  So, anything from here on out can be relied upon as being "real".

This is what my Ovidrel trigger shots look like.  Unlike the Bravelle FSH shots, the Ovidrel comes in a pre-filled syringe; which is kind of nice.  No need to mix the meds and fill the syringe myself like the Bravelle. *thumbs up*

For some reason, seeing the BFN on the HPT today really bummed me out.  I know that seeing a BFN was the whole point of testing today - to make sure the trigger's out of my system - still, I couldn't help but be reminded of all the BFN's I've seen so many times before.  *le sigh*

I'm only just 5 DPiui today...most likely implantation hasn't even occurred yet (I'm talking optimistically here, as if it's going to happen! :-).  So, there's really no reason for me to feel so down; but I just do.

I'm going to go jump on the treadmill and try to forget about it all for a while...

To make matters worse, our sweet, little Scottie dog, Eagan, had an infected anal gland (yes, it's as GROSS as it sounds); so he had to go to the vet bright and early this morning to get that taken care of.  It's not pretty...there was blood everywhere, and he literally screamed in pain (dogs CAN scream) when the vet "expressed" the infection out.  Poor little guy.  So, now, he's got to take a bunch of antibiotics (he had a fever on top of everything) and wear a diaper (he's not very happy about this!).

Here's our sweet boy napping on his pillow with his cool reusable diaper on (well, we think it's cool, he doesn't really care for it too much) in our office today.

I'm just hoping and praying every day that this is our cycle!  This has got to be the most stressful 2ww I've experienced yet...probably because it seems as though this has been our best chance to date, and also because we are nearing the end of our ability to keep trying financially.  If this cycle doesn't work, we might be able to do one more go of it; but that will probably be it.  So, lots of stress and fear and sadness has been floating around our house, even though we're just trying to pray and believe through it all that we won't get to that point!

My family is coming down next week, and I'd love to have good news to share...we'll just have to wait and see.

Not-so-patiently Waiting,
*mandie*

  1. Hi Mandie,

    I saw your bravelle tutorial on youtube. It was very helpful. Didn't know I could squeeze out the air with the q cap on! Makes it much easier not to lose the medicine. Could you tell me where you posted the ovidril tutorial? Thanks!

    1. Am pela, thanks to Dr Osaze who cured me of fallopian tube blockage and fibroid with his herbal tuber cleanser. My marriage was on the verge of collapsing, because I was unable to bear a child for my husband. Until I came across Dr osaze's recommendation on line, and I contacted him. And he administered his herbs on me. I now have a child I can call my own. In case you want to contact him for a similar problem, or all other issues, you can reach him through his email:
      drosaze39@gmail.com or call him on +2347089275769

  2. Hi there! Sadly, I never ended up making an Ovidrel tutorial; because we stopped TTC and decided to adopt at that time.

    I believe Ovidrel has to be refrigerated (if I'm remembering correctly)...just remember to warm it up a tiny bit beforehand (not too much or it will burn). Follow the same injection techniques in the Bravelle video and you should be okay.

    GL and much *babydust* to you!

  5. I have been trying to get pregnant for over 12 years and at the same time looking for ways online, I first did Depo Provera Shot which i consecutively took every three months in order to get pregnant or fertile, there was no good result from it. I did Depo shot for 3 years constantly until Doctors in Kenturkey told me to try IVF because I had Endometriosis stage 4 and I resulted to try IVF( In Vitro Fertilization). Months after my IVF nothing progressed and my situation became worse that my husband had already made his plan getting married to another woman which made me sort help in spell casters. I read a testimony about Doctor Muna how he had helped so many women with pregnancy and fertility problems. Of all options tried, I decided to give Doctor Muna a try. I am now a mother of twins. A boy and a girl. For over 12 years of marriage I received my help from a spell caster. I want to impact on someone's life and make the person get help from a good spell caster that is why I put up my testimony for you. Doctor Muna's email is marvelspelltemple@ gmail. com Once you contact him, he will help you fast

  6. We had no luck getting pregnant for over 12 years ..... Before my husband saw comments on Parents, referred us to marvelspelltemple @gmail. com We liked Dr Muna right away with his straight forward personality and positivity. Earlier before we met with Dr Muna I had endometriosis. Endometriosis had damaged my ovaries/eggs. We did surgery for my endometriosis and were not successful getting pregnant with IVF, however miscarried due to a chromosomal abnormality. After a couple more tries at egg retrieval, we decided to go with Dr. Muna Infertility Spell that made us conceived our first child. We decided to go for another Dr. Muna Infertility Spell, we got pregnant again and on July 6th, 2018, our second child was born! Marvel Spell Temple were so helpful during our times together. Dr. Muna always made an emotionally difficult situation a little easier with the care and support we received. Dr. Muna has a great sense of humor which lightens the tough times of infertility spell and is extremely caring. We could not of found a better spell caster. We felt very fortunate to have been directed to marvelspelltemple @g mail. com to help us through the difficulties and then success of making our little family.

  7. I just wanted to send a note to thank marvelspelltemple @gmail. com for the little girl we got to cuddle today. My first interaction with Doctor Muna about Infertility Spell process, I was scared and had a lot of questions. However Doctor Muna was always there for me throughout the whole process and became a part of the family. The most precious moments were spent looking at the first ultrasounds of our little miracle and watching her heartbeat for the first time. Moments I will not forget for the rest of my life. I am so thankful that I went to marvelspelltemple @gmail. com as he knew exactly what type of protocol to put me on that was right for me. This was our first and only attempt and thankfully it worked. Again, thank you all for your expertise and compassionate Miracle. Because of it I will have a lifetime of memories of our little girl!

  9. I give thanks to Dr Ebhota for helping me get a permanent cure to Uterine fibroid. I have used different western medication without any improvement, And I could not have a child of my own. I had heavy bleeding, frequent urination, a bulky stomach, and cramping. My bleeding is sometimes so heavy that I can’t go out. I go through 9-10 pads in a day. It is so uncomfortable. I have tried everything you can imagine because I’ve had my fibroid for 18 years but none of them have really worked. They just make you feel like you’re doing something but at the end of the day its not really much of a relief. People advertise all sorts of “Fibroid Cures”. I’ve tried all that you can imagine and they worked for a little while, but it’s not working out you have to keep on going. You cant really stop taking them. I got the contact of Doctor Ebhota from the testimony of people on the internet, and I contacted him through the Email and explained every thing to him. then he sent me his product which I used for 2 weeks. Now am completely cured so I really want to tell this to the world that there is a permanent cure to Fibroid. contact him on drebhota123456@gmail.com or whatsapp: +234935324155 he can help on any health issues
