Ghost help....sex the day of trigger

Postby Alwaysangel » Mon Jul 04, 2011 12:54 am

I went to re today and triggering tonight. In the packet I got with the schedule it says to have sex tonight? I'm not sure if it means tonight is the last chance for a while or if it helps with the upcoming procedures???? I'm just nervous about doing something to screw up this cycle! Has anyone heard of this?

Sorry that no one responded last night...I know that Ghost is on Summer vacation for a while.

Some RE's suggest this because there is some thought that the sperm can help promote implantation....but no worries if you didn't! You also have to be very gentle if you do because of your swollen ovaries. Many do not suggest sex at all for that exact reason.

I had actually heard the night before transfer for those reasons. Oops! Just reread your post and you said at trigger....

I think regarding before retrieval it is different. They want a good high sperm count so don't want him having sex for 48 hours before retrieval, but no more than 5 days.

Good luck with your retrieval!!! Think positive thoughts!!!! :D :D

Yes. Some suggest it because there is some evidence that something about the intercourse apparently promotes implantation. Others refrain from it because uncollected eggs might get fertilized and result in high order multiples in patients with patent tubes.
