I took clomid from day 2 to day 7. and took hcg 10000 iu for egg rupture.

I am little worried...as i feel my iui will fail...as iui was done very early before ovualtion.

I took hcg shot on day 11 and iui was done 14 hrs after hcg shot.

I have heard washed sperms do not live longer than 12 hours.

Now taking susten tablet vaginally and ecosprin.

Brief Answer:
Continue Medicines

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have seen the attached images.

Washed sperms do live upto about 24 hours.

Inj. hCG should have been given 36 hours before IUI ideally.

But still pregnancy chances are there and more over you have tried naturally also later. This increases pregnancy chances.

You can wait and watch. Continue medicines as prescribed.

Brief Answer:
IUI better performed after 36 hours of inj. hCG

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

IUI should ideally be done about 36 hours after giving inj. hCG. which is the time for ovulation. It is better to do after ovulation or just few hours before ovulation.
