IUI March

Postby carly1234 » Mon Mar 19, 2018 3:53 pm

Hi! I just did my first iui, took 50mg of clomid days 6-10 and then went in on day 12 and had a few follicles including one at 21.5 cm. I had to leave town for work for the next two days and asked if they could give me medicine to hold off ovulation until I return but the doctor was afraid I would ovulate anyway so he gave me a trigger shot and then did the iui an hour and a half later. I have since looked up more about the timing of iui and am feeling discouraged because a lot of sites say that the washed sperm only lives for 12 hours. I can't find one actual medical research article stating this, though, so am wondering if anyone out there has any information. The doctor swore that the sperm will live up to 3 days and will be waiting for the egg when it's released. Has anyone experienced this? Thank you!!!
