Failed IUI - severe menstrual cramps

JosieMo posted:
My husband and I have been tty for 2 years and just completed our first IUI. I got my period today and am having severe cramping; the vomiting/lying on the floor kind. Is this a rxn to hormones from clomid and the trigger shot? Is this normal?

I have had 7 IUIs and NEVER had any of those symptoms when AF showed (vomiting). I did have severe cramps but it was because of endo and polyps, not from the drugs. Could it be the flu?
Me 36, DH 37, 3 rounds clomid (9/11, 10/11, 11/11),IUI1 12/14/11,IUI2 1/10/12,IUI3 2/9,RE March 21st, LAP surgery 3/28

Are you sure your not pregnant? Spotting and bleeding happened to me when I got pregnant on a med cycle, I also thought my period started and when I went to the RE on my first day of cycle to start another drug cycle but was told I was pregnant. The hpt was negative by the way. Hope this helps.
