Anyone have an IUI done?

Was it successful? How many times did you try it? Is it painful at all?

Thanks, we're having one done tomorrow and I'm a little nervous. We're paying for it out of pocket and it's our last chance to get pregnant before my hubby deploys.

  • If you do not have natural lubrication (drugs made me kind of dry) it can be a little uncomfortable/painful (not horrible) - they can't use the lube that they use when they do a pap or other procedures because it might kill the sperm or slow it down. I did it twice. I got pregnant both times, but I miscarried the first time. I ordered PreSeed to use before the second round, and it wasn't as uncomfortable. Good luck!
