    Default HCG question!

    Does the HCG trigger shot cause your follies to grow a little more? I have one that is ready now (17.5 or maybe bigger by now), and a 14 and 13 (this was as of Wednesday. I did another shot of Follistim Wednesday night so probably a little bit bigger). So I am hoping they get big enough and then I ovulate all of them on Saturday. So does the HCG make them grow a little bit more in the ~36-41 hours or is it the Follistim left over in your system that might make them grow a little more?

    The follies do continue to grow another 1.5 to 2mm between trigger and ovulation, but not sure if it's because of the HCG shot or the leftover stim meds...

    well your body naturally makes the FSH so that help the follies grow more. I remember last cycle, he let me "coast" meaning I went like a day without meds but my body's natural FSH made the follies grow a little bit more. HTH. Go get that eggie

    The hcg trigger shot causes the final maturation of your eggs. My RE explained that it helps the eggs go through the first stage of miosis.

    I'm not sure if its the shot or not - but I do know that they continue to grow - even after the shot.

    They keep growing until ovulation, and I *think* I remember something from my doctor's explanation that the HCG will help them mature further for fertilization.
