Should I be abstain from sex during an IUI cycle?

Our patient info about intrauterine insemination doesn't have anything about this, but it probably should. If you are scheduled for an intrauterine insemination using your husband's sperm (IUI-H), there is no reason to abstain from having sex during that cycle except for the night before the insemination. In fact, it might be bad to abstain. I saw a recent presentation claiming that IUI pregnancy rates are lower in couples who abstain for many days before the insemination.
