In brief: No one best day

Several studies going back to the 1980s demonstrated that pregnacy rates were the same whether cc was started on cycle day 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5.
Most rei and fertility specialists have preferences for some days over others; it's sometimes a theoretical concern (i prefer cd3) and sometimes a practical matter.
