IUI and Ejaculation

Hi all,

Sorry to sound like a newbie but I need a little advice. We are just about to start our IUI and we spoke to the hospital yesterday who said if I ovluate tomorrow then come in on Monday for the treatment. As my hubbie had been told to not ejaculate since last Monday we thought it was best that he should last night as this would give him 3 days which was co-incided with the intercourse days from the clomid cycle I have been on for 11 months.

The hospital advised us to call them today if I ovulated, which i have and they now said come in tomorrow. My concern is will my husbands sperm be OK as he ejaculated last night? There are no problems with his sperm count but we are a little worried.

Has anyone got any advice that will help please.

RE: IUI and Ejaculation

sorry i don't have an answer for you - do they give you any guidelines on this?
we're trying naturally and my DH's sperm is on the lower motility side - the cons advised us to bd every other day so i'd have thought it would be fine.
hopefully a more experienced IUI lady can come along and advise soon.

Susie like Kara said try not worry hun as all hospitals are different, When we had all 6 iuis they told us not to have any intercourse i think thinkthink It was 48 hours until we had our iui insemination. So i dont really know sorry i cant help you with that one hun i would defo ask your consultant though to be on the safe side :goodluck:
