Can We Have Sex?

Postby Kara29 » Sun Dec 18, 2005 12:20 am

:?: :?: When doing Follisitm injections for IUI(on day 8 no where near ready to be inseminated) my eggs are not ready..............are we allowed to have sex before artificial insemination. I am taking 75 IU's for the weekend, so today and tomorrow and then on Monday, I go in for ultrasound and bloodwork, just wondering if we could have intercourse tonight.

Ive been told that it really doesnt matter if u have sex or not, during iui but we have never had sex during the day before insemination of the the whole 2ww....Mainly as I am not in the mood and my head tells me what if it riuns it, but hey we have had 3 iui's and got 3 fails, so next time parhaps we will have sex.

Just do what feels best for u and dh xx

Just try to leave about 3 days so your DH's sperm can be at full count for your IUI.

Our doctor strictly forbade sex the day before IUI as it can cause infection or change the timing factors. I would heed his advice as my wife got pregnant from abstience the day before with IUI.
