IUI increases the chances of getting pregnant.
Pregnancy symptoms after the IUI procedure are the same as with normal
conception. Women after IUI may experience one or more of the common symptoms
of pregnancy. Read on to know the pregnancy symptoms after IUI procedure.
Women opt for IUI in order to get pregnant. In this process
the sperm is placed exactly where it should be in order to bring about a fair
chance of successful pregnancy. This means that it is placed inside the uterus
by the means of a fine catheter. As it is made to reach directly inside the
womb, the woman is more likely to get pregnant than the case if the sperm
travels the distance on its own, the condition that happens during a natural
intercourse. The pregnancy
symptoms from IUI are not very different from natural conception. They are
discussed in brief below:
Bleeding during Implantation
After the IUI procedure is complete, the symptoms begin to
appear within a couple of weeks. The first amongst them is the implantation
bleeding. This is however not a generalized symptom. It can happen in some
women while it may not happen in others. In both the cases it is perfectly
normal. Often women also confuse this symptom of spotting that happens before
menstruation. Implantation bleeding is basically a condition when the embryo
implants to the walls of the uterus. This can happen six to twelve days after
conception. A bit of cramping can also be associated with bleeding.
Stress and several other hormonal problems can render an
impact on the menstrual schedules in many women. Women are commonly found to
experience a delayed menstruation or miss a period that sort of hints towards a
possible pregnancy. Mild bleeding and spotting can also happen and it is
medically normal. It is known that after conception, menstruation stops but
these spotting and bleeding symptoms are not reasons for worry.
Tenderness in Breasts
There are possibilities of misunderstanding as the symptoms
that are experienced during normal menstruation can also be experienced during
early pregnancy as well. Tenderness and swelling in the breasts is one such
symptom. The breasts feel sensitive, heavy and sore and if this feeling persists
when the period is late, it is advisable to take a pregnancy test.
This is one of the most common pregnancy symptoms and can
also be caused by other factors like strain and exhaustion. A sudden surge in
the progesterone hormone is the primary reason behind this fatigue for pregnant
women. A very high level of progesterone induces sleepiness in the person. The
situation is further compounded by the fact that the blood sugar and blood
pressure plummets. This causes the blood production in the body to rise which
validates the extra consumption of energy.
The infamous morning sickness has long been associated with
pregnancy. Here again not every pregnant woman experience this symptom. The
fact that women need to note here is that this typical nausea can be
experienced during anytime of the day. This is partially caused by the surging
estrogen levels that slowly drain out the stomach. A sudden strong odor can
also play the foul sport.
Aversion or Craving for
Craving or aversion for certain foods are typical for
pregnant woman and can last throughout the entire term of the pregnancy. Here
people are more attuned to the idea of craving but the aversion part is not
much talked about. Often even a sudden smell, taste or look of a certain food
item can cause a churning sensation in the stomach of the pregnant woman. This
is believed to be caused by hormonal changes and noticed particularly during
the early days of the pregnancy.
