is there a correct timing for IUI?

I think it would be best during ovulation. Remember that in IUI, the sperm is transfered to the woman's womb. It would be more successful and it would make sense to do it when there is an egg present in the uterus.

If it is nearest or during ovulation, then that would increase chances of getting pregnant.

I think it is usually several days after the HCG shot to make sure that there is ovulation. Then the doctor would administer the IUI.

I would say during ovulation. This will make it easier for the sperm to reach the egg and increase chances of ovulation.

IUI is usually administered after shots of HCG and lupron are given in order to make sure that ovaries are stimulated and that there are no fluctuating levels in the hormones. This is to ensure that conception happens during the next few days after giving the patient an IUI.

IUI is usually administered to couples with low sperm count or motility. IUI gives the sperm a head start but the sperm needs to seek out the egg by itself. This means that to be successful, there has to be an egg cell. So ovulation is necessary to make IUI successful.
