IUI question

Hi ladies I have a quick question about the IUI. DH went in today to get a sperm anaysis and hopefully will have the results by Thursday, my question is , does he have to ejaculate in the cup again for the iui or do they use they same sperm from today?

Definitely new sperm two to four hours before the IUI. They do not want to use older sperm as it is not as fresh (and could possibly die). So on the date of your IUI prepare for him to go one to four hours ahead of you.

Yes, fresh new sperm the day of the IUI! Your doc will probably give you a sterile cup and maybe an instructions sheet about how long to abstain from BD (usually 2-3 days) and how to keep the spermies nice and warm on your way to the clinic. Smile
