Trigger Shot

September 16, 2012

Pregnyl injections are used to stimulate follicules to mature and ovulation to occur in women who are having difficulties getting pregnant due to problems with their natural ovulation, or who are having in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment.
Firstly, follicle development is stimulated with daily injections of FSH or FSH and LH. Once the follicles have developed appropriately, one injection of Pregnyl is given. The HCG in the Pregnyl injection mimics the action of luteinising hormone and causes the release of an egg from the ovary. The woman is usually advised to have sex on the day of the Pregnyl injection and the day after. Up to three repeat injections may given in the following nine days. (Source:

The injection was quite fast. I think we were in the room for less than 15 minutes. Cost us about $13 for the service (so the taxi was MUCH more expensive haha). Like all other injections, a bit of a sting there. But no other side effects observed. 

Hopefully it does it's magic and we harvest enough eggs tomorrow. Wish us luck!
