IUI or Intrauterine insemination is a less invasive procedure when compared to IVF or In vitro fertilization. Couples get many benefits from this procedure as the chances of pregnancy increase a lot because of IUI. Days after IUI is conducted, candidates wait eagerly for a beta or a pregnancy test. Feelings of anticipation and anxiety are overwhelmed after the procedure is done.
Overview of the procedure
To know what happens after IUI, you must have a clear idea about what happens during the procedure. It is a process that involves implanting the semen into the uterus directly. It generally takes place when the woman is expected to be fertile.
After the procedure, taking a rest is the best suggestion. The pregnancy happens when the sperm fertilizes the egg. Further, the embryo is expected to implant in the uterine wall, which helps produce hormones that can sustain the pregnancy.
In case your body fails to produce hormones, doctors will suggest taking hormone medications. It is an excellent option for the ones who have fertility issues.

Things to do after IUI
The key to a successful IUI is the proper timing. IUI takes place in the middle of the monthly cycle when you are expected to ovulate. In the case of a medicated cycle, doctors will suggest drugs that will ensure trigger ovulation. Or else a test will be conducted to check ovulation and the timing.
The procedure is not risky; therefore, you will feel fine after IUI. It does not require sedation. This means you can do your works after the procedure and return to normal activities.
If you have successful implantation, the chances of pregnancy are high. You must follow specific tips mentioned below after the procedure:
- Consume a balanced, healthy diet that is rich in protein.
- Drink enough water.
- Avoid consuming illegal drugs, alcohol, cigarettes.
- Get proper sleep.
- Please do not take any stress and manage to overcome it.
- Try to be physically active but do not opt for rigorous training to lose weight.

Symptoms to expect after three days of IUI
Some may figure out spotting just after the IUI procedure. This is caused by the irritation of the delicate tissues that are found in the vagina and cervix. Do not confuse this be implantation bleeding.
One may expect the implantation bleeding after seven to eleven days of the IUI procedure. It occurs when the implantation of the egg takes place in the uterus wall. Initial spotting usually stops by about three days. In case the bleeding does not stop, or you are experiencing cramps or pain, immediately contact a fertility doctor. But these are very rare so do not worry about it.
Implantation and beyond that after six days of IUI
After six days of the procedure, implantation will be approached. It is conducted about one week after the IUI procedure. Therefore this is the time you must start monitoring. In the case of light, spotting considers that to be implantation bleeding.
Most of the women also experience cramps due to implantation. But most women do not experience such symptoms. The absence of any symptoms does not indicate that you are not pregnant. In some cases, some women go through this implantation after eleven or twelve days. All human bodies are not the same; therefore, do expect the same symptoms that others are going through.
Until implantation occurs, there are no chances of pregnancy. It may take sometime after the implantation to be pregnant. The medical beginning of implantation is marked by the beginning of pregnancy. HCG is produced after the implantation.
