I take my first HMG injection in a few days followed by HCG then my IUI. I researched HMG and found out what it stands for and was confused as to how the urine of a menapausal woman could help? Why do doctors choose HMG which is FSH and LH over something like Follistim? If HCG already contains the LH then whats the purpose of it being in the HMG as well?
Also if we were on the off chance to get pregnant before the injections/IUI and we didn't know- would the injections/IUI hurt the pregnancy? Is it better to abstain and just wait for the IUI?
