Hi, this is my first time on here and my first time to do IUI. I received my HCG shot and IUI on Thursday. On Sunday, I did a preg. test and it was positive but I read the papers and it said that HCG shots can cause a false reading. When would be a good time for me to take another test? Could my original test be correct?


Hi there. The + you got on Sunday was definitely a false + from the hcg shot. Even if you were pg, it would be too early to show up on a test anyway. The rate at which hcg leaves your system varies from person to person, but here's a good guideline.

2,500 unit shot = 7 days
5,000 unit shot = 10 days
10,000 unit shot = 14 days

Most trigger shots are either 5,000 or 10,000 units. (Mine was 5,000.) I would suggest waiting 14 days just to make extra sure everything is out of your system.

Good luck!
