Hello
Thanks for your query.
Normally, Ovulation happens on average 38 hours after an HCG injection, with a range of 34 and 46 hours.
In the normal course, fallopian tubes do catch the released egg, but it is not compulsory.
At times, due to minute damage to the tube, it might not function normally, and fail to catch the ruptured egg.
If the egg also is defective, it fails to migrate normally towards the fallopian tube.
Take care.
feel free to ask any further questions.

if in one cycle tubes do not catch due to minute damage , can the tube catch the egg in the next cycle or the damage is permanent?

what is meant by defective egg? if eggs are defective in one cycle are they defective in every cycle permanently?

Hi
I would ask you not to worry.
At times, the tubes go into spasm, which can be relived the next month.
Permanent damage is in the form of infection or adhesions.
Defective eggs means due to increased age or chromosomal abnormalities in the egg.
They would not be defective in each cycle, unless you have some kind of such disease.
Please do not worry, as stress is the main factor, which will negatively affect the results of the IUI.
All the best.
