When frozen sperm is de-thawed does it need to be kept at body temperature until the IUI? 

We get IUI ready sperm delivered to my doctor's office but it takes two hours to get to us after it has been prepared for IUI and it is NOT kept at body temperature- it gets delivered in a plain envelope with aluminum foil covering the lid.  Can the motility be negatively affected?

Thanks!

Ideally, it should be at body temp, as any sudden temp change can adversely affect their motility. Having said that the period of time you are talking about is quite short, so I would not think any major harm would occur.
