I would like to know why do we need to abstain from intercourse while we are doing injections and HCG.. and IUI ..I can understand 3 days before the IUI to get better sperms results, but why not before. Does any one know?

Hi-I am not sure but IVF maybe diff than IUI but during our IVF cycles we were told we could have intercourse just as long as it was protected. Strange I know but they said while on the meds *just in case* something would happen that it had to be protected intercourse. Hope that helps.
