I had IUI done on 12/30 @ 11:00 a.m and felt some pressure and cramping after the procedure. Since then I am also feeling cramping intermittently with some pain in my back on the left side. Also feel pressure and slight pain with BD’ing. If my memory serves me correctly I had a 21mm follicle on the left side when the U/S was done last Wednesday prior to taking the Ovidrel shots to trigger O. Has anyone else experienced anything similar to this with IUI?
I’d say you’re fine. Try not to worry!
Thank you I certainly hope so but I am totally miserable. It hurts worse when sitting as opposed to standing. Leads me to wonder if I have a kidney or bladder infection since I have also been going to the rest room more than normal.
That’s possible. Go to the doc…they can do a quick test to see if you do. In the meantime…drink some cranberry juice and take some Tylenol…and stop BDing if it hurts until you find out what’s going on.
I think I am going to put in a call to RE and see what he says. I will also try to stay away from DH since he can’t seem to keep his hands off me lately lol. Thanks for advice.
I had this same pain last month on my right side…the side I O’d from. After O, there’s still a lot going on with the corpus luteum supplying progesterone to support a potential pregnancy. I had it from 3dpIUI until my period started. I often will have weird cramps around the time that progesterone peaks (around 7 dpIUI) and I chalk those up to corpus luteum and my body’s natural progesterone because I’ve had them with my BFP cycle and non-BFP cycles.
My first IUI was terribly painful. Not only was the procedure painful, but I had the worst camping and bloating until 8dpo or so. I’m not one to call in sick to work, but I had to leave at 10am one morning, and I couldn’t return for two more days. It was terrible, and I wondered if something else was going on.
8dpo I started to feel better, and all better by 10dpo.
After the first cycle, I had fewer symptoms. Best of luck!
