Hello, I am on day 8 of stims and might trigger this weekend. Do any of you know if it's ok to get busy with DH? I have over 20 follies growing on each side and can only imagine the soreness getting worse so I guess is now or not for a long while, lol.

A little about me:

5 failed IUI's

IVF#1 BFP- DS 3 yrs and 4mnths old.

Currently on IVF#2 hoping for another miracle :)

So my clinic does NOT recommend intercourse during stims, but really in my it's not that bad because worst case you get pregnant. Though they did have one woman not follow the instructions and get pregnant with sextuplets... not probably a desired outcome...

Thank you for your response, Chris. It was supposed to be easier this time around since I did IVF four years ago to conceive my son but I cannot seem to remember anything. Also,

In most cases as long as you don't have a male factor, it is okay to get busy up until the day of trigger.
