    Abdominal Pain after IUI even after 6 days
    Joshi posted:
    I did an IUI around 6 days back - 2 Cycles in 2 days. Ever since, I am having pain in the lower left abdomen. I talked with the Doctor and she advised me to take pain killer Drotin DS - twice a day.

    I am taking the medicine but the pain is not going away. My abdomen feels heavy (lower left portion) and pains. Sometimes the pain subsides but it again comes up. Specially if I stand a lot (more than 1 hour).

    Can anybody help? Please advise. My Doc. says to take the pain killers and come and visit after 2 days. (that would be after 9 days of (IUI)

    Abdominal pain is common, especially for me, post IUI. I would be concerned about taking pain medication, especially since you could be pregnant. I felt a lot of pressure post IUI in my bladder area with cramping.
