I had an IUI done yesterday with Reproductive Biology Associates (aka Southeastern Fertility Institute) with a natural ovulation cycle, which means i didn't take clomid. it seemed that all went well. i detected my LH surge on Sunday, had the IUI on Monday and seemed to have ovulated today since my temp went way up this morning. Now it seems like i've started cramping though. now this is not unusual for me in that i usually cramp from the start of ovulation till my period starts but what worries me is that if i'm trying to get pregnant and getting the IUI txs, the cramping can't be good for that. no doctors are able to tell me what is causing the cramping and why i'm getting it at that time of the month. the cramping feels like my body wants to expel something but there is nothing to expel. now what if my body tries to expel the makings of the IUI tx? i don't know what to do. is it progesterone or what? what scares me is that if they can't detect a pregnancy through the IUIs, my doc wants to try IVF and i'm reluctant to try that, especially if this cramping is the problem, it'll continue to be the problem even during IVF.

I had 3 IUI cycles, plus an IVF, and a FET to no avail - ended up pregnant when naturally when we decided to just adopt. Anyway, after each of my procedures, I was always very crampy which was unusual for me - i never had bad cramps before. These were bad enough to keep me in bed for the day of the procedure. I always thought it was just normal to experience the cramping after. Mine were not successfull, but I had a friend who had cramping too, and after her IUI ended up pregnant. Hopefully the nurses at RBA can answer some of your questions and relieve some of your anxiety. Call them - that's their job. Last thing you need is the added stress of wondering.
