I had an IUI 4 days ago and now I am having some white sticky discharge, cramping, & some back pain I was just wondering if this is normal or should?

I am 12 days post my 2nd iui. I started with intermittent mild cramping last night. Could this be implantation or my period coming?

If there's any way to distract yourself until it's time for your HCG test, you should try. If you're 12 days post IUI now, then it should be very soon! Read more
