My first time doing IUI? I go see my new OB friday and I'm pretty sure that IUI will be my next step since clomid failed after almost 2 years, so i was just wondering what are some things I should expect before, during, and after the procedure?

Thanks!! :)

Was very medical, like a pap.  Injected laid ther 5 minutes and sent home.  Before it was many ultrasounds watching for folical size.  If doing triggers then iui will be based on when that happens.  Otherwise based on size of folicals.  No didnt get pregnant 3 or 4 cycles that I did. 

Instead I got pregnant naturally with my SO of 5 months. Sadly lost the pregnancy 16 days ago.

I've had three IUIs done, two with Clomid and one with Femara. The procedure itself is very quick and painless. It only lasts a couple of seconds, and is nothing more uncomfortable than a Pap smear. After the procedure, you should expect a little bit of cramping and you may even spot a little (I never did, but my doctor warned me of it). It's nothing to worry about. Good luck! :)
