Can You Have Sex After Iui Procedure
After an unsuccessful IUI on 27 th June, doctor advice to take OVRAL L. Should I take this tablets? Can I have sex?
Ovidrel?: I could be wrong with my answer but I believe you mean Ovidrel. This medication is an injection that makes you ovulate. Technically Ovidrel doesn't increase your chance of pregnancy over the IUI itself, it just makes the timing better. The stim is what affects your chances. Clomid and Femara are common weak treatments. Injectable stim meds could give you that extra boost. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more
Intrauterine insemination (iui) is where fresh or frozen partner or donor sperm is prepared or 'washed' to increase the sperm quality then gently injected through your cervix after a speculum exam, like a pap smear exam.

Day after iui, having moderate to severe cramps and lower back pain, was told to have sex today, it was very painful. Normal or should I call dr?
Call the doctor: Ovulation can cause cramping, but there is a small chance of infection from inseminations (iui). A fertility clinic performing an IUI preparation should see signs of infection such as white blood cells in the sperm, before proceeding to 'wash' the sperm (prepare it for iui). If there is an obvious infection they would tell you not to do an IUI this month, but you can still have timed intercourse. ...Read more
I had an IUI Sunday after Clomid and an HCG trigger Saturday morning. The doctor recommended intercourse that night and the next 2 but we didnt.. does that affect the success of the IUI greatly?
Probably not ...: But we expect that everything that is recommended in a complicated protocol targeted to such a valuable (and expensive) outcome as a desired pregnancy should be followed! I know you want to be reassured that you didn't "blow it", and you probably didn't. My strong advice, however, would be to follow ALL your recommendations as closely as possible! Best wishes:) ...Read more
I am scheduled for an IUI on tuesday. I have to get an hcginjection tonight, sunday, at 10pm. Can my husband and i still have intercourse?
Yes, but when?: Abstinence before IUI varies based on semen number/quality. I agree that usually 3-5 days are ideal and sometimes 7 days when numbers low after sperm wash, etc. Intercourse after the IUI does not hurt and may help a small bit. Always check with your medical team for directions. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Preparing for IUI and taking menopur daily. Is intercourse advisable at anytime during the stimulation of follicles?
Yes, unless advised: Most couples doing IUI cycles with ovulation induction medications should have intercourse 2-3 x a week to cover you if you ovulate early, and to 'keep his sperm specimen fresh'. With injectable medicines like Menopur you have more potential to make too many eggs than with Clomid / Letrozole tablets, so your clinic will monitor you and tell you not to have intercourse if you over-respond to shots. ...Read more
Why would an IUI without washing/cleaning the sperm be dangerous? Why could it cause shock? R sperm naturally cleaned during travel w intercourse?
High volume antigens: During the iui, you are being exposed to a large amount of "foreign" material very quickly. With sex, the vagina delivers the sperm to the cervix slowly. Most of the semen which nourishes the sperm is left behind. With washing, you are reducing the semen delivery while maximizing the delivery of high quality sperm. ...Read more
