Had a Pap?: If you've had a Pap smear done before, you'll find the IUI is nearly exactly the same. If not, you can expect some discomfort - most describe it as dull pressure - from the speculum. It should never be a "sharp" pain. If you've never had a pelvic exam before, make certain the person doing the IUI know that. Good wishes.
