Juniper. The iui was the easiest bit of the lot!! First one didn't hurt at all, no cramps or any thing. I could feel the catheter "tickle my insides" but in no way painful.
second iui, the ovulation was pretty intense with 4 follicles, 3 mature, but the actual insem is a relaxed experience with no pain. Doc even turns the light out for 10-15 mins afterwards so you can keep the goods in there, as he says. Pretty much what Karla Allison described.
Congrats waitinghoping and arli! Hopefully it won't be too long before I'm in the same boat
They do say that after the HSG is the best time to do a cycle, as it opens the tubes and they are in prime condition for success. Not what happened in my case, but that's what I was told when I had the HSG done.
