My ovaries hurt so bad on the way home


So my appt yesterday showed 2 follicles (maybe three) that are ready to go. I was sent home with a trigger shot for last night and IUI tomorrow. My ovaries hurt so bad on the way home and now they really don’t at all. I can feel them…but not much. I am only on cd 8 but I’m worried that I ovulated already. They don’t do scans before IUI. I’m not sure why but I’m assuming it’s because the gel/lube stuff they use is not semen friendly??


I triggered Friday night (yes having my hubby give me a shot in the butt sure is a sexy valentines day). I had my IUI on Sunday. I felt cramping type pains beginning on Saturday into Sunday. I still feel some pain/ discomfort- not sure if ovulation pain or maybe from the IUI. It’s hard to tell because I don’t really feel ovulation pain normally- since I don’t ovulate on my own :slight_smile: Sounds like we test around the same time again this month. I wish you well!! My RE at Bio tex said if I ever feel like that, just have sex to be on the safe side because there’s nothing they can really do at that point. Hopefully though, the trigger will keep you from actually ovulating for 36 hours. I hadn’t had it yet when I ovulated early. Don’t worry! You’re not too late! Prior to the trigger shot, the eggs are stuck to the side of the follicle. The trigger loosens the eggs before they release, so that’s probably what you are feeling. I have always felt every little thing in my ovaries. I feel ovulation pains immediately after the trigger, with the most intense pain 40 hours after the fact. Good luck with your IUI!


Unfortunately this does happen with treatments. Pains in ovaries are dreadful. This is due to medications taken. It’s suspicious your doc never did the scan before iui shot. Sounds unprofessional to me. Did they recommend you any of painkillers to take? Hope things got to their places.
