post iui pain

Any one experience intermittment cramping,  well, not really cramping,  ummm...its more like intermittment pain in lower ab?
and back pain.  Is it possible more than one implanting causes this?

I ovuate normally, but border on release of a mature follicle, so we did the Clomid, HCG , IUI regime.  100mg Clomid the usual days 5-9.  HCG on day 16 without a scan, because it worked for conceiving our son.  then iui day 17,   we are now at day 20 and thank good the pain has lessened considerably, but the right side still hurts especially when I walk.  We go in for a progesterone test on Monday.....

Any ideas?  Everyone was awesome on this site, Thank you so much in advance.

Take care and God Bless

Have any problems going to the bathroom lately?  Sometimes
a kidney or bladder infection can cause back pain.  It could
also be some kind of cyst on your ovary.  Your best bet is to
get it checked by your doctor or OB/GYN.

I just had my first IUI treatment done last Wednesday(about 4 days ago). The pain on the first day following the procedure was horrible! Cramping,not unlike really bad menstrual cramps,plagued me for the whole day afterwards. I took a couple of extra strength tylenol, which really didn't do much good for me. I figured that the pain was caused by ovulation, since I usually have pretty bad pains every month when I ovulate normally. Since my husband and I were doing Clomid, plus Brevelle and then the booster shot two nights before the procedure to insure ovualtion, we figured that the pain must be from this(I had three mature follicles on my sonogram, so that was probably the culprit). Problem is that the pain has not subsided at all. I am still feeling discomfort throughout my whole belly/pelvic region. It hurts to use the toilet. My right side is very tender, and my left side feels almost swollen. I also have pain radiating around to my back. I try to get up and move around, but it doesn't feel comfortable. The possibility that I may be carrying atleast three viable eggs that may have all been impregnanted worries me. Is anyone else going through this?
Good luck ladies, if you are all praying for a successful pregnancy through IUI. Hopefully all this pain and discomfort will be worth it!

Hi,  I also had the same problem with the pain. The day after my IUI I had incredible pain in the center of my pelvis by where the uterus would be, and the about 6 days later they came back and lasted for about a day. It also felt like my vagina was throbing (TMI Sorry)  :)  I went to the doctor b/c I thought maybe it was a UTI and she said it doesnt sould like it.  I had 2 follicles one on each side.  Did you get a period or a positive HPT?  I am keeping my fingers crossed that it was implantation!!!!!!  Good luck to all..

I am now on day 21 of my cycle(IUI was last Wednesday). The cramps come and go.It feels as if my period is trying to come on, but then nothing happens. I have very tender breasts and some light spotting. I also have a yeast infection caused by the lovely Progesterone suppositories I have to take until my blood test next Wednesday! Can't take anything for the yeast infection...called my nurse today and she said that the bleeding is a good sign that I may be pregnant(implantation bleeding).
I can't wait until next Wednesday to know for sure! It is killing me to not be able to take a HPT right now to see if I am indeed pregnant.
Clarissajennifer did you get your test results back yet? I hope there was good news for you.

keep fingers crossed for me next Wednesday!

i just found this forum on line, i had my IUI done on Tuesday 6/24/08 and was in extreme pain afterwards. I couldnt stand up straight, walk, pee, poop, sneeze, cough, eat, nothing. My RE said to drink gatorade but am scared cause of the pain i feel when i have to pee. Almost feels like an UTI but no burning. My RE said i had many mature follies on both sides, 3 or each side. Its the next day and im feeling a lot better than yesterday.  I still have the major bloating and pee pain, i can stand up and walk around but not 100% normally.  I have to wait now 2 weeks before i either get AF or take HPT and see what the results are.  I have been on 3 cycles of clomid and nothing. This is my 1st IUI cycle. I was dx with PCOS at 13 yrs old. I always knew me and DH would need help concieving but whatever we have to go thru its worth it.
Baby Dust to everyone.  - Christina

I talked to my gyn and he said (in better terms then I am gonna say) that because normally when a man ejaculates inside you, the semen does not go into the uterus. Even though they wash the sperm, there is still some semen in the tube when injected into the uterus so it can cause some irritation. He didn't say how long this pain would be but day 1 was pretty bad (even worse cause I had a cough and it was VERY painful) day 2 okay, day 3 okay until after I went for a run, now pretty uncomfortable.
this is my 1st IUI and day 3....good luck gals!!!!

Hi there...
I hope ur pregnant by now. Just wanted to say tht if u have been miscarrying due to lack of progestrone u should take it starting from the day after the IUI procedure. Even if progestrone is not deficient ur doctor is still suppose to ask u to take progestrone from the day of the IUI procedure. I donot know why u r asked to take after a week.
Find out or change ur doc.

Hi everyone, i am also new on here.  I have been reading lots of msgs from women who are trying to concieve (conceive) with iui.  I had mine done on the 7th of may.  My first day was also very painful, following up to the next day with bloating. I have had period pains ever since the 9th. I am on 2ww but feeling like my period is comming even though it is not due for another week.  Has anyone had these symptoms. I called my dr and he told me that it is normal.  I would jus like to know if anyone else has had them..

Hi All,

I had my 3rd IUI done yesterday and am hoping to get positive results this time. My Gynaecologist has put me on Duphaston for 18 days starting yesterday.
Any precautions to be taken post IUI. I am little worried as 2 of my previous IUI failed. I want to be extra cautious this time.
I am keeping my fingers crossed.
All the Best to all you pretty ladies ttc!

Regards,
Sush

For 10 days after my natural IUI my body was not the same - I was extremely bloated, could feel my left ovary, general movement like walking was uncomfortable as I felt like my uterus was about to fall out! Some days I also felt a little light headed and worst of all I did not fancy doing much at all. Unfortunately on day 14 my period came, but I felt like my old self again. Told my doc and he was a tad dismissive and could not explain what it could be.

If i had taken meds I would have assumed that was the problem, but because I opted to go without the first time - it was def the IUI procedure that I reacted to....
So on to the meds next, hope it works out this time and I pray I don't got through the same discomfort:)

Second round of iui. And I too have severe pain in my remaining ovary. My other ovary twisted behind my uterus in my first pregnancy almost eight yrs ago.
