Re: June IUI
Jun 20, 2005
Meghan - I just went through almost the same process you are going through. I had an HSG in April a few days after af was done. I didn't get af again until the end of May, took Chlomid on days 5-9 and had IUI on day 16. My story is pretty long, but the short story is that the drs office kinda messed up when I went in for my follicle scan and didn't give me a shot to control my ovulation, so I ovulated before my follicles were large enough. They still went ahead with one day of IUI (instead of the 2 they were supposed to do) and told DH and I to go home and have lots of sex for the next couple of days.

The HSG was a little painful for me, as they had to clamp onto my cervix and had lots of trouble getting the tube through (I think he went through 3 or 4 tubes before finding the right one). It was a little crampy when he passed the cervix with the tube, but it was pretty cool to see the dye going through my tubes on the screen. All in all it wasn't a terrible experience. Similar to a pelvic exam with a little more discomfort. I've heard it suggested that if you take a few advil or tylenol before the procedure, it will cut down on the pain.

As for the IUI, it was similar to the HSG, although she did not have to clamp onto my cervix, so much less painful, but still a little discomfort and crampyness for a few hours after. She told me I could take Tylenol for any pain I had. I didn't take anything, as the pain was pretty bearable.

I am in my 2ww at this time, I get to test on Saturday. I am excited and scared. Because of my situation, she told me there was about a 15% chance that the procedure I'm not too hopeful, but trying to be positive.

Good luck to you and your DH. Keep in touch.
