Fertility specialist: Fertility specialists are a lot like golf pros. Golfers will wait until all the elements are perfect before taking the swing. Fertility specialists do the same thing. They will wait until your body is ready before proceeding with treatment to maximize the chances of success. Discuss your situation with the doctor managing your IUI so that you understand the rationale for the delay and timing.
