Has anyone here used IUI before? I had my first two today and yesterday. Not to be graphic but both days it feels like it kinda all came out. The nurse said it was mostly not the swimmers that came out.. but my own stuff. I just want to know if anyone else felt the same way.

Thanks!!

I always had that feeling too, and it was totally troubling. But I got pregnant twice with IUIS, so it must not have been the spermies spilling out! I would lie flat on the table for about 20 minutes after each IUI, and I remember one doctor saying that she turned the catheter while she was removing it to help prevent leaking. One doctor told me that sperm could not fall out after being put in my uterus, and that I definitely should not worry about it.

HTH! And sending lots of your way!
