Hi MrsDoc. I also had the same dilemma. I did my 1st IUI last month (BFN) & it was 40hours between the trigger and the insemmination. I was so worried that the timing wouldn't be right. Infact, it actually crossed my mind that me & hubby should have BD'd the night of trigger, but the clinic advise against this because they want to save the best sperm. Although I don't suppose I'll ever know the reason why the IUI didn't work, but in the back of my mind I do wonder if the insemmination was too late. I'm about to start my 2nd cycle, & this time round i'll be following my gut instinct & me & hubby will be BD'd regardless of what the clinic say, after all there is no problem with his sperm, it's my PCOS that's the problem.
Let me know how you get on, best of luck for a BFP!! xxx

Hi Hollie, I ended up doing the trigger later anyway (hubby and I had a huge fight, which was probably hormone-induced!), plus he had a bit of difficulty producing his sample, so I ended up being 1.5 hours later in getting my IUI, so I'm still a bit worried that it won't have worked. I wanted to BD before too, but after the fight, neither of us felt like it (still haven't actually).
Good luck for round 2 - fingers crossed for a BFP this timexx
