Thanks for your query.
Generally IUI is done within 36 hours of the trigger shot for ovulation, because that is when the follicle ruptures.
Best timing for IUI is when follicle ruptures.
If the follicle did not rupture on Saturday, then IUI on Monday is fine, because after rupture the follicle is viable for 24 - 48 hours.
Take care and feel free to discuss further.
