I need some help about triggering and timing intercourse as its doing my head in!
Today's scan showed a nice 18mm follicle and Dr wants me to trigger 8am Wednesday with Ovidril. So that means I will O 24-36 hours after and the egg lasts around 24 hours. Is that right?
DH works away and won't be home until Thursday night. Will we be okay with timing? We also BD on Monday afternoon before he left.
Every time I sit down and try to figure everything out my head just wants to explode!

I may be wrong, but I think the male sperm die off quickly, but swim the fastest and the female sperm can live up to 3 days. Someone may come along with a more scientific answer, but I think this is what I was told by my very clever GP years ago.
