Brief Answer:
24 hours after HCG injection.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for the query.

Hormone injections like Newmon cause ovulation induction. Its a series of injection that have to be taken during several days of the cycle and followed up with follicular monitoring. It takes several injections to develop the matured ova and when they are at least 18-22mm then they rupture to disperse matured eggs.

Just before the rupture , another hormone injection may be required to help with the rupture. This is a long process and may take several cycles to succeed. Your doctor would have put you on a protocol, and you should follow that up. The hormone that is given just before rupture, 'helps' to cause the rupture within 24 hrs. You should try intercourse from the time of the said injection up to the next 72 hrs at least. That is the best window of opportunity.

Hope this answers your question.
