care to be taken after iui


1. Completed bedrest for 4-5 days after your IUI. This is to conserve your body's energy so that it can concentrate on conception.
2. No excercise except light walking for 2 weeks after IUI.
3. Eat lots of protein rich foods. In moderation, eat eggs, soya and chicken products, You can drink milk and whey protein products and eat lots of nuts and seeds such as sunflower, walnuts, almonds etc. Aim for atleast 75 gms of protein a day. Your body needs the protein to help the egg fertilization process and help the egg implant properly into the uterus.
4. Keep a positive frame of mind and pray to god to help you at this time.
5. Do breathing excercises or light yoga and imagine the egg being fertilized and implanting properly in your uterus and having a healthy and safe pregnancy.
6. Drink lots of water, atleast 8-10 glasses a day, preferably at room temperature.
7. After the IUI, keep your stomach covered and protected from wind for atleast a week. Your womb needs to stay warm to aid conception.
8. Even before your IUI, start taking a pre-natal and a DHEA supplement. The DHEA is especially important for vegetarians as it contains Omega 3 fatty acids that aid greatly in conception and maintaining a healthy pregnancy. Additionally, studies have shown that babies whose mothers took DHEA during their pregnancy score higher on IQ tests as kids that those whose mothers did not take the supplement.

Tomorrow is my 4th IUI, me and husband are in good health, we been trying to conceive 18months ago but no luck yet. Thanks for the tips for the fact we should really rest and please for 4-5days and light movements. For my past 3 IUI, I wasn't rest enough in bed, and frequently cramped on my cervix. This time I gonna follow the tips, rest in bed, light yoga and meditation, follow by eating more proteins and drink lots of water. Wish me luck! If this time not success, we will opt for IVF. Good luck to the ladies out there who are trying to conceive :)
