Pregnyl Injection after ovulation?

I'm on Clomid, day 3 - 7, for the 3rd month now, ttc. I take the Pregnyl on day 12 or 13 depending on when the gynae is available. This month, on day 11/12 I had lots of stretchy white discharge, I would think ovulation. I took the Pregnyl on day 13 (26/11/09) as I travelled outside the city for work on day 12. I still haven't had any clear stretchy mucus like I normally do after I take the Pregnyl & am now on day 17.

My concern is, if by a long shot I did conceive, what are the consequences of taking the Pregnyl after supposed ovulation and/or conceiving? Why didn't I discharge like I normally do after the Pregnyl shot?

Hi, Hanna,

Welcome, and thank you for your question!

Pregnyl is an injection of Chorionic Gonadotropin, a hormone that stimulates ovulation in women. Its Pregnancy Risk Category is C, which means "No adequate human or animal studies; or adverse fetal effects in animal studies, but no available human data."

That sounds a bit worrisome, I know. But please know that if you conceived on the 12th and had the injection on the 13th, the embryo would not even have implanted yet. Typicallly, it can take 7 to 14 days for the embryo to implant in the uterus after fertilization.

I am afraid I can't tell you why you didn't see the normal clear, stretchy mucus, other than suggesting that maybe with the little extra stress from traveling, you had less than normal or didn't notice. But even so, it would still have been possible for you to conceive.

Good luck, we'll keep our fingers crossed for you!
