Symptoms to expect following IUI

Symptoms to expect following IUI

Discomfort or symptoms following Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) are due to the side effects of fertility drugs such as progesterone pessaries. Thus, it is normal that you experience certain symptoms like bloating, abdominal pain, cramping, brown spotting, and swollen breasts.

Only if these symptoms become too intense or prevent you from continuing with your daily routine, we recommend that you visit your doctor to see if bed rest might be required.
