1st IUI complete- very Painful!

Postby babyhatch » Thu Jun 30, 2011 8:16 am

We did our IUI this am. No one warned me that it was going to hurt so bad! She had to use something that looked like huge pliers(according to DH) to move my cervix over. Then she had to use something to pry my cervix open. I had severe cramping during the whole process but it's done! Hopefully I won't have to go through it again. Oh and we had 22 million sperm. That sounded a little low to me but they said that it was good. FX this is our cycle.

yay!!!! Sorry it was so painful. I think the experience is different for everyone. My first IUI hurt quite a bit because the nurse had to feel for my cervix and then had to move it a bit, but the actual IUI part has never been painful for me except for just the slightest bit of cramping. Hoping you are recovering and get the :bfp: in the next 2 weeks. And 22 million sounds just fine! How many follies did you have?

Both my first and second IUI's hurt a lot too. I felt the same way as you did the first time because I wasn't expecting it to hurt. My second IUI was worse because apparently my cervix was not cooperating. My third IUI will likely be this weekend, if all goes well, and this time I'm going to remember to take some Advil beforehand!
Good luck to you and hope your first time's a charm! :luck:

Just had my first IUI today, and it was very painful. I agree, it wasn't the IUI itself that was painful, but because of my tipped cervix, they had difficulty even getting to the cervix, so that was quite painful. Hoping that this works and we don't have to go through it again!:)

I have had a lot of symptoms that are similar to pregnancy because of the endometrin which I have been on since the IUI's which stinks because i can't really tell whether or not it worked and am too afraid to test at home because of it being negative :( I am in the same boat at you are my husband had 22 mil with 97% motility and I had 3 follies 18+ not sure exact count on all 3. I had 2 IUIs done July 2+3.
I wish all you ladies good luck and hope that you gals all get a :bfp: soon!!
