Abstract Intrauterine insemination (IUI) during ovarian stimulation cycles is typically performed 36 hours after human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) injection. We hypothesized that adjusting the time interval to IUI to better coincide with ovulation may increase pregnancy rates. Patients undergoing induction of ovulation utilizing gonadotropins and gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonists ...
