hi guys, just wondering a few things. i'm a nervous wreck, i've been on clomid this cycle (my 2nd cycle) and friday i go for an ultrasound to see if i have follicles ready. if so they're going to give me the trigger shot for friday night and then do IUI on Sunday. i don't know why i'm so nervous but i am. we're in the 'unexplained infertility' category, DH's guys are all great swimmers and great volume, so they think its my cervix, i'd had a surgery on it a few years ago. but anyway, does IUI hurt? i'm wondering the success rate. i'm so hopeful, trying to keep a positive outlook.

thoughts?

thanks in advance,

liz

Hi Liz, I am Liz too! I am having IUI tomorrow. I had an ultrasound and my trigger shot yesterday. As far as I have read it doesn't hurt to have IUI. It was compared to a PAP. I had an HSG and was told IUI is like that but without the balloon and cramping. Good luck, I hope your IUI works!!!

I had IUI twice and felt very mild pain during the process.the process takes about 2 min.It's just like pap.after IUi also I never felt any bloating or cramping.

All the best to both of you.

I never had IUI but I had embie transfer yesterday and I *believe* that the catheter is the same for both. If so, then no it doesn't hurt. The worst part was when the doc was cleaning any cm off of the cervix. It wasn't painful but it made me jump a bit b/c I was not prepared for it kwim

I'm guessing my threshold for pain is much lower than many of yours. For me, the 1st IUI was painful BUT tolerable. The 2nd IUI, the day after the 1st, was much more painful than the 1st. Maybe them being back to back was what really put me over the edge. I stayed in bed the whole 2nd day & had quite a bit of spotting. Neither time was super painful but they were definitely very uncomfortable. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate the 1st one at about a 2.5 & the 2nd one about a 3.5.

thanks to all and good luck to you too. i am a huge wimp, so i like to be prepared. when i had that HSG the clamp they hold open your cervix with killed me, and then the doc couldn't get the dye to light up the other side, so he started forcing it. needless to say, hurt like heck.

lizzy-funny we're doing it the same week, hope your's goes well, is not painful and results in a BFP.


anyway, keep your fingers crossed for me.....

thanks!

liz
