When is sperm collected for IUI ?

The sperm is usually collected through ejaculation into a sterile collection cup or in collection condoms. Most of clinics want the semen within a half hour of ejaculation, so if one lives close then the sperms are collected at home but if not, one has to go to the clinic and do it in a private setting. After this washing is done and the sperms are used for IUI.

What is the best time for IUI ?

As per experts, within 6 hours of either side of ovulation, IUI should be performed. When timing is based on an hCG injection, the process is done between 24 and 48 hours later. Post-hCG, the timing of IUI is around 36 hours or 24 hours, while others also do it in 40-42 hour
