How long before a double IUI would you be given HCG shot. And what should be my follicle size. They had me injected when is was 16mm?

IUI: An HCG shot is usually given 24-48 hours after IUI. However, your follicle should have been bigger before the IUI to begin with. Usually IUI is best done when you have a positive LH surge. A follicle size of at least 3.0 cm is encouraging. ...Read more

Will IUI work even with out releasing eggs? I had two matured follicals each right & left side. After hCG shot 10000, eggs didn't release in36 hours.
