I have been in alot of pain following the IUI I had this morning. I feel moderate to severe pain in my abdomen. It hurts to the touch and if I move a certain way. It does not feel like menstral cramps. I have taken motrin but with no relief. I was in tears this afternoon due to the pain. Has this ever happened to anyone?
Did you do a stim cycle, particularly injectiable stims? If so, it could be from that. You could also be suffering from over stimulation, which can be very serious. You should call your nurse if it's that bad. Please do so right away. Better save than sorry.

I hope you are feeling better. Did you call the doctor? I had mild cramping after my first IUI last month, mostly because the NP scraped my cervix by accident. Your pain sounds more serious. I hope you are ok, please keep us posted.
I just had an IUI today. I have slight pain. It is much better than my last IUI. The pain was so bad. I couldn't walk or move. I definitely over stimulated last time but never called the dr. My RE today told me to drink a lot of Gatorade/coconut water/ Pedialyte- anything with electrolytes. Last time I drank a lot of water and he said that I was better off not drinking anything than drinking water. He wants me drinking 100 oz of those drinks. He also emphasized that if my pants started feeling tight or if I had a lot of pain I needed to call him immediately. Over stimultion can be serious. Hope this helps!
The pain started getting better by the next morning. I did end up calling the doc office. They didn't seem too concerned and told me to take a motrin. I'm just crossing my fingers and hoping this cycle is "the one", because I really don't want to go through that again! Thanks for your concern!
