How Does hCG WORK

During various assisted reproductive technologies, your ovaries are stimulated to grow follicles and develop mature eggs. These eggs won't release from their follicles without a hormonal trigger. In a normal nonmedicated cycle, your own surge of LH is what triggers ovulation and release of the egg. Researchers have found that hCG is chemically very similar to LH. Therefore, hCG is injected and works as a hormonal trigger to release the eggs from their follicles. Ovulation typically occurs 36 hours after the hCG injection.

Depending on which assisted reproductive technology you are using, either you will be advised to have sexual intercourse or your fertility specialist will perform intrauterine insemination or egg retrieval. You must accurately time this event because precise timing is required for successful egg fertilization.
