This hormone is what we look for with a “pregnancy test”. HCG is first detectable in the blood as early as 7-8 days after ovulation by very sensitive HCG assays (research assays). In real life, blood pregnancy tests will be positive (> 2 mIU/ml) by 10-11 days after HCG injection or LH surge.

Does a trigger shot guarantee ovulation?

Trigger shots are part of what’s called gonadotropin therapy. This type of fertility treatment has been around in different ways for the last century (really!) and has become more refined in the last 30 years. Gonadotropins stimulate the ovaries, so they’re useful if: you don’t ovulate at all.
