For the IUI I am suppose to go in on CD 1 to get an u/s. I know the Dr's are use to this but I feel so embaressed to go in while on my period for an u/s. I am sure most of you have done this though right? If so how was it?

It's usually fine. They are accustomed to it and think nothing of it.. I promise.

I had to do that for the first time this past cycle. I was pretty embarrassed, too. When I went in, though, the most awkward part turned out not to be their reaction, which was professional, of course, but, erhm (TMI), getting to and from the exam table to the bathroom with no, ah, protection. I'm not sure if there's a solution to that.

I, too, was nervous when I went in for my very first CD1 scan. I assure you they are very used to it. Once I got through it, I felt better. And I have gotten used to them. Nothing phases me anymore with fertility treatment! LOL

I was horrified to do this, too. One of the other girls suggested this little trick...wear a tampon AND a pad to the appointment. They always ask if you need to use the restroom before the exam, so I would say yes, remove the tampon, and clean up a little. Then I'd wear the pad into the exam room until they told me to undress. Most of the time it wasn't a problem, and even if you leak or drip a little, they don't care at all...they see it every day and pretty soon you'll think nothing of it. Good luck!

I didn't do a CD1 scan, I did a CD3 scan and I hated it...but like the other ladies said...the doctors are use to it.

I also came to this board with the same question last year, scared to death about what to do, and I did what the other girls said-wore a pad into the room, then undressed quickly and hopped up on the table-there was a Chux pad on the table, so it wasn't too bad. I'll echo all the other girls..they are used to it and nobody made me feel awkward at the RE's office or anything.

wow i've never even heard of this but I did have to have a scan while I was miscarrying because they thought it was ectopic. Same sorta concept...a lot of blood and I was so embarrassed. The tech doing my scan didn't make a big deal out of it at all. I kept apologizing for the blood and she just kept saying not to worry.

Thanks ladies. I too had to go in while I was miscarrying and my Dr had to do an exam and dig the placenta and all out because it was stuck in my cervix so I guess that is really no different. Worrying about my bleeding was the farthest thing from my mind at that time though.

This is exactly what I did all the time. Worked out perfectly!
