Ok this may sound ridiculous...but wouldnt there be a big risk of multiple sperm fertilizing the same egg?
When i did my last IUI I only had 1 mature follie and dh's count was 15 million after the wash. Wouldnt there be a big possibility that more than 1 sperm would find its way into the egg before the outer shell had time to harden preventing other sperm from entering??
I was reading that with normal conception only 10% of the sperm will make it to the fallopian tubes and egg.
does this make any sense to anyone else or am I totally over thinking this!?
I think you're overthinking it I think that the egg is VERY quick at only allowing 1 sperm in, and the number of sperm around it really doesn't make a difference. You just want to increase the chances of ANY sperm getting in!!
