Egg health is an extremely important part of becoming pregnant. When eggs are released that are not healthy and mature, they will have only a small chance of being fertilized. In fact, it is possible for them to be unable to sustain a pregnancy at all. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

In other instances, when an egg is not healthy and mature, there is a possibility that it will not be released at all. Instead, the body will hang onto the egg because it is not able to produce a healthy egg. When this happens, a woman will not be able to become pregnant at all.

What are HCG drops?

HCG is crucial to a pregnancy. It is what is developed very early on in a pregnancy and is also developed by the placenta after it has been formed. This is the chemical that a pregnancy test will look for in order to determine if you are pregnant.

HCG is used in women who are trying to become pregnant because it can actually cause an ovary to release an egg. Typically, after taking HCG drops, an egg will be released about 36 hours later. This helps you to know exactly when you are ready to conceive.

When is it Used?

For the most part, HCG drops are used by women who are undergoing fertility treatments. For example, your doctor may prescribe them when you will be undergoing intrauterine insemination. This occurs when sperm is placed inside your uterus when an egg is ready to be fertilized.

However, this is also something that can be used when women are undergoing in-vitro fertilization. It is given to women so doctors can retrieve an egg for the fertilization process to take place. Most of the time, these drops are taken along with other fertility drugs that are intended to help an egg mature and develop properly.

Taking the drug correctly is important. Most of the time, this simply means following the instructions your doctor provides to you because a specific date will probably be provided to you. Taking the drops on the right date will help make your fertility treatments more effectively. This along with following the tips to getting pregnant will certainly boost your chances.

It is also important to note that after you have taken HCG drops, the drug will likely linger in your system for a couple of weeks. If you take a pregnancy test during this time, you will likely receive a false positive. Because of this, make sure you wait the proper amount of time before you take a pregnancy test when you have been prescribed HCG drops.
