Hello Ayesha,
Well, you have two dominant follicles of good sizes on either ovary .
But as per our protocol , generally we used to wait for spontaneous rupture by body's own mechanism till 11 th day and if not , then use HUCOG.
Regarding the chances, the success rates in IUI is multifactorial and depends on many male and female factors. success rates varies from 15 to 30 % in various institutions.
Good luck

Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das
Firstly, for a ovum to get ruptured from a follicle, the follicle should reach minimum 20 mm in size.
In your case, three follicles are developing in both the ovaries. Two of them will reach their maturity and will produce a normal ovum within 2-3 days.
If you take the HCG the process will be more smooth.
So, overall, there is high chance of conceiving if all are normal till the last.
Wish you all the best.
