Sheerena,

Hello and welcome:angel:

How many days post IUI are you? Are you taking any other meds, ie, to help support the pg? If so, you may or may not experience pg symptoms from the meds. Also did you take clomid or any other stims? if yes, that too can give similar pg symptoms.

You may notice some slight implantation spotting a few days post IUI but sometimes you may not notice anything. Breast tenderness is another one that could be pg and could be medication related. I know that it is really hard to not analyze every twinge and feeling. You can go on line and look for early pg symptoms, but everyone is different and some can "feel pg" right away and others don't. Is this your first IUI? Did your GYN or RE give you any guidance? How long until you can do a beta?

Lots of luck and keep us posted

Thanks HopefulX2.5 for your quick reply,

My gyn prescribed clomid for 5 days starting from 3rd day of my period, now I am taking Utrogestan and Folic acid. I get cramps, tender nipples and breasts, dizziness, I feel nauseas sometimes but as you said it could all be caused by the medicine. I had the IUI ten days ago (my first one, hopefully I won't go through that again); my gyn told me I should wait 2 - 3 weeks then phone him whether I had the period or not. I have regular periods so I will take a home pregnancy test if I am late.

wish me luck,

Shereena

Sheena,

Hello again;)

I am wishing you lots of luck. The clomid may make you have those symptoms, it did for me anyway. Seems like the day after IUI, I had really tender breasts, had to wear a bra to bed even. Also, felt almost PMS like during the whole 2ww. it was so confusing b/c I wanted to analyze every twinge and of course I was extremely hopeful.

Remember that those home tests can give you a false negative, usually your HCG has to be pretty high for it to register a positive test and sometimes it is still too early. However, the beta blood test is the best (it can detect it much earlier). So, don't get discouraged if your HPT gives you bad luck, I say until the fat red lady sings there is always a chance.

Good luck sweetie and hope your BFP is right around the corner

Thanks Hopefulx2.5

I had a very depressing day yesterday, I had soem brown discharge with traces of blood, something I usually get right before the period. I am still waiting to see what is going to happen, but I don't believe I am pregnant anymore, I felt very sad, and I wanted to cry. I hope we will get luck next time, or may be there is still hope. I will keep you posted.

Thanks again.

Shereena, I have just got my BFP, and I had brown spotting with a bit of red here and there I was worried that it was going to be AF but as it turns out it was implantation bleeding, so maybe you are expriencing the same. Good luck as long as AF does not show you still have a chance.

Good Luck

Thanks Charlene,

You don't know how much I appreciate your emails, I have no experience in that at all, and I totally freaked out when I had this discharge, I thought everything went to the drain, if we were just trying like any other month I would have been a little disappointed if I am not pregnant, but after going through the IUI and being on medication before and after and all the preparations and timing everything and sonars, I felt very depressed. I am still getting dark discharge, so nothing to do for me now but to wait; I will contact my doctor this week if I don't get my period and will see what will happen.

Thanks again for all the support.

Have a wonderful day,

Shereena

Shereena I am glad that I could help you a bit and offer you support. If you ever need encouragement or a place to let out your frustrations then we are here for you.

Has the bleeding got worse or is it still the same? If it does not get worse then the chances are good it is impantation bleeding.

Sending you tons of sticky baby dust your way.
