Brief Answer:
Repeat hCG of different brand

Detailed Answer:
Hi doctor,

I understand your concerns.

Sometimes it happens due to defective hCG batch. I suggest you go ahead with different batch of HCG today or recombinant hCG ( brand name ovitrelle).

This should help you to ovulate.

Let me know if you need anymore help.
