The hormone Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) is produced during pregnancy. Known as a trigger injection, hCG is used during fertility treatments to stimulate ovulation around 36 hours after administration. Ovulation is induced for IUI or IVF treatments and timing of the injection is crucial to pregnancy success. Your fertility care team will give you precise instructions on when to self-administer the hCG trigger shot when scheduling your procedure.
