I had my first IUI done yesterday morning around 10:30. The procedure itself was quick and painless. The doctor who administered it said it was a good and easy IUI. They inserted around 50 million sperm.
Around 1:30 yesterday afternoon I started cramping really really bad. I couldn't get up and walk, I couldn't sit up, all I could do was lay in bed and cry. I ended up crying myself to sleep and sleeping for a solid 2 hours. I woke up with less pain but it was still there. I feel like my abdomen is wicked full. If it makes any sense I feel totally bottom heavy. The pain is definitely less than it was when this started yesterday but I'm still in some intense pain. Really hurts when I sit, or when I stand, but once I am in a position if I don't move it's okay.
Anyone else experience this after IUI or can I assume something went horribly wrong and I should call the doctor to be seen ASAP? I have read things online that state some moderate discomfort is normal but going on almost 24 hours of this kind of pain is making me think it's not so normal!!!
sorry hun havent done iui but i think if the pain is unberable you should contact your doctor to put your mind at ease or it could be the ovulation cramping (the egg being realeased) i hope you feel much better soon.xx
No, no fever enicole. This might be TMI but I've been having trouble going to the bathroom since yesterday, too. This morning I hit Dunkin' Donuts and grabbed myself a large ice coffee and that helped me go which has actually eliminated a lot of the pain! I now just feel sore and slightly crampy. It still hurts a little with each step I take, but I'm not doubled over in pain like I was yesterday!!
Sounds kind of like the ovulation pain I sometimes get. it literally hurts to move for about 24 hours. I do know IUI can cause soreness for a while after. but I have only heard of extreme pain in cases where the sperm was not washed before the IUI. The prostoglandens in the semen can cause severe cramps. so I hope that was not the case with your IUI.
