I did natural IUI Friday (no meds) and it was our third try natural (got pregnant 2010 with clomid IUI but is nursing that baby now ). The other ones have been painless and after the IUI I haven't thought a second of it. This time the actual IUI was still painless but I have had cramping and now I feel like I am bloated in my left side and I am tender when I push it. Since I have not had this before it worries me. Is this common? Now my husband is worried it is an ectopic pregnancy but those symptoms wouldn't show up now would they? I mean it is only 2 days after the actual IUI. Anyone had this or know what it could be? If it continues I will of course call my doctor
Sounds like ovulation pain to me too. I had a horrible experience with my last IUI. The pain was intense and I was so bloated I couldn't even wear my jeans they were too tight! I was told to drink lots of fluids, gatorade is a good choice. I was told it was from fluid in the pelvic area from ovulation. Do you know how big your follicle was? Sometimes when it's a bigger follicle this can happen, or if there are multiple follicles. I hope you are feeling better soon. For me it lasted a couple days.
