We had IUI on 08-04-14 now 11days I have breast pain from IUI first day and back pain started 9th day iui.2nd day spot bleeding and stopped. Any reason?

Breast pain: Breast pain is likely related to the hormonal changes and the medications that you were using before iui. No conclusions can be made regarding the success or failure of IUI based on the presence or lack of breast symptoms. Simply check a pregnancy test when instructed by your doctor usually 2 wks after iui. ...Read more

8th day from IUI treatment, negative result, but all the symptoms for pregnancy, tender breasts, nauseas, etc is it possible to be to soon to know?

Testing too Soon: Does your question mean that you have already tried a pregnancy test? If so, then yes, this was done way too soon and was probably a waste of money. The body does not know it is pregnant and thus cannot create 'symptoms' for some time. The fetus has to implant and then grow to a size that it has blood and blood vessels and is sharing blood with the mother. This happens at least fourteen days. ...Read more

Clomid, (clomiphene) ovidrel, IUI on 3/4. Had breast tenderness, brownish spotting, tingling here & there. 3 weeks post IUI negative hpts & beta. Possible problem?

Failed CC/IUI: The most obvious problem is you did not get pregnant. Not having a period could be for several reasons: not ovulating on the clomid, (clomiphene) possible persistent functional cyst would be 2 likely ones; you'd need to see a doctor in person to sort it out. Best of luck! ...Read more

I did IUI 7days ago & have been reading that many women experience implantation bleeding & cramps. I only have sore breasts. Do most women experience it?

Implantation: Implantation of the fertilized egg occurs about seven days after ovulation or IUI. Not every implantation causes bleeding, but mild cramping may occur and you may have just ignored it. Your breasts are probably not sore yet because of pregnancy, but just due to the hormones made in the after ovulation phase of your cycle. ...Read more
