IUI timing question Print Version

IUI timing question
If my two "good" follicles are mature on Monday, we're going to trigger on Monday. My doctor wants to know if we'd rather do a 24-hour insem or a 36-hour insem.

If we do a 24-hour, I'll trigger Monday morning for a Tuesday morning insemination. If we do the 36-hour, we'll trigger on Monday night for a Wednesday morning insemination.

Which do you think is better? 24-hour? 36-hour? :google: I'm so confused!! :crazy:

TIA for any help! :nworthy:

Im not sure why there's an option. For me it was 24hrs. GL!!!!! Ive got a good feeling about this for you!!! :shamrock:

Thanks, Tammy. I didn't know we'd be given the option until that moment. :hscratch: So we'll talk about it but we're leaning a bit toward the 36-hour one for some reason. According to everything I can find, ovulation occurs around 40 hours after the trigger. For those with male infertility issues, a slighty higher conception rate has been noticed with the 36-hour insem. :huh:

But I don't know. We haven't settled on that for certain.
