  Infertility Solutions: Is IUI painful?

Dear friends
Just wanted to get your feedback on this topic.Those who have already gone through the procedure of IUI can you please let me know whether this process is a simple one or is it very painful and complicated?
Do you need to take full bed rest for weeks or so after that?
I have been suggested for my first cycle of IUI this month and now really scared :(
Can you share some of your experiences here regarding IUI? Please....

Hi! My IUI was scheduled this month and was done yesterday. I was so much scared and I read all your posts almost daily. I want to thank you all for increasing my courage before I share my experience.
It was very easy and painless process. I felt 0 pain and was done in half minute..yes..can you believe it? and lay down for 10 min... I will say, vaginal sonography is more uncomfortable. It was not even the pain we have while we take injection. Mine was done at Pulse Hospital, Ahmedabad. I think they have latest technology and very expert experienced doctors, I am still surprised, I could not even feel cathetor in..Thank you Dr. Sandeep Shah. I recommend this hospital to all. So, girls, don' t see pics of speculum and catheter on google, not watch animation video, it will scare you.. The IUI is totally painless. I have 2ww and hope to get BFP, but I am ready for next cycle of IUI as it is soooo easy!
Good luck to all!

I can understand ur mental state and will suggest you to not to worry.As IUI is painless procedure and is done in just 15 min.and doctor will make you to lie in the clinic say for 15 mins more after the procedure.and after then you can have your regular routine .All the best.....

I have been through 1 cycle of IUI and it is not at all painful. it is a simple procedure that takes 10 mins, so dont be afraid. after the procedure, you will be advised 10-15 mins rest after which you will be able to walk around and do your work as normal. I infact even went back to work after my IUI was done. there may be mild cramping if at all.
all the best, when is your IUI scheduled.

my IUI is scheduled for this month end.
can you tell me whether the success rate of IUI depends on the factor if you have more follicles then your chances are high?
And also whether no. of follicles vary on the factor whether they are stimulated by clomid or HMG inj?

I am in Delhi so mine was done in Sitaram Bhartiya Hospital by my gynaecologist who had delivered my daughetr 6 yrs back.. we are now trying for our second child and experiencing unexplained fertility. My 1st IUI was not successful, so we are going for another cycle this month and will try total 4 if required. I was hopeful that I had conceived in the 1st cycle itself, but i guess it was the hormones iwas taking that made me believe so.. take care.

I am feeling much less scared now after hearing from you all.
Where is your IUI done?
Is it successful on the first one itself?
How many cycles of IUI treatments are generally performed to get a success ?

Im trying for the baby for past one year, i have visited most of the hospitals in chennai like GG, kurian joshep, MMM, appollo hospitals etc..(because im eagerly waiting for a baby, i got married before 2 yrs) , i have done 3 times IUI in Apollo, it' s a simple process, it takes just 5 to 10 minutues for whole procedure.Dont get afraid only mild pain will be there.Because of my hubby' s less motility i got failure. Im planning to do IVF. All the best:)

thanks for your reply dear!
My husband also have the problem of motility that is why doctor has suggested IUI.This will be my first try for it..
Let us see what happens.
I have heard IVF´ s success rate is much higher than IUI.Hence you must be benefited by that.Don´ t worry.Let us be positive,what you say? :)
My best wishes for you..
