Egg release 36 hrs+: Good question. They probably all do not release at the same time. Usually about 38-40 hours later, but it is highly variable. We do egg retrievals at 36 hours post Ovidrel and eggs are there. The IUI is usually at 36 hours. Be sure to have intercourse in the 36 hours plus time. Best of luck!
