    How long for swimmers to reach the egg?

    Hi, I was just wondering if anyone knows how long it takes for the sperm to reach the egg when doing an IUI. I peaked yesterday and triggered in the AM then I had IUI this morning at 9am so I would imagine since the swimmers are placed in the uterus it would take less time than normal.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks

    with bsm, it takes 8-12 hrs.

    have no idea with iui... im assuming its right away being that it goes into uterus as close to tubes as possible.

    I read online that implantation can occur 6 to 12 days after you ovulate or have an iui. Not sure if that helps. ~*~*~*~baby dust to all of you~*~*~*~~

    I've wondered this (how long it takes from IUI to fertilization), myself. Haven't found the answer.

    From research:
    - BMS: 1% enter the uterus, IUI: 100% enter the uterus!
    - BMS: Fert takes 10 hrs. IUI: My guess, 5 hours.

    We're a good step ahead of those BMSers!

    Here's some info: http://www.visembryo.com/baby/1.html
