Welcome to ehealthforum,
If ovulation inducers have been used to treat you for PCOS (and increase chances of pregnancy), you may have more than 1 egg follicle maturing. Egg follicle should mature upto 20 mm to release the egg successfully. If required at this stage HCG trigger injection is given to make the egg follicle burst and also help to sustain the endometrial lining. Monitor cervical mucus changes, cervix position, and the BBT (basal body temperature) charting to predict your ovulation (along with the follicular study) and time your intercourse for having fruitful results. Have intercourse in positions that allow for deeper penetration for high deposit of semen. Do not change positions immediately after ejaculation, put pillows under buttocks to minimize semen spill, and avoid getting up within 30 minutes of ejaculation. Have diet with foods rich in zinc content to ensure better maturation of egg and sperms. Consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for further evaluation and assistance and be in regular follow-up and monitoring as instructed and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
