Thanks for your query. I read your query and understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

1) Its nice to know you got good follicle developed which is ready to ovulate.

2) your doctor has given inj. hCG for follicles to rupture. The follicles rupture approximately after 36 hours of giving inj. hCG.

3) The best time to have intercourse is from after 36 hours of inj. hCG to 3 to 4 days in which time the egg is likely to be fertilized and implanted.

Wish you all the best.
