    For me a bit of cramping is normal, especially if I trigger. The RN usually says it is a sign of ovulation, it's just more intense because of the medications. I wouldn't worry about it unless it's accompanied with bleeding.

    I had terrible cramps after all my IUIs.  Keep-me-up-at-night kind of pain.  But that was normal, and nothing was ever wrong.  I wouldn't worry!

    I have always cramped and had some spotting with my IUI's and my nurse said it is a very normal side effect as your cervix becomes irritated with the IUI's and your ovaries have some swelling. Good Luck :)

    Ditto for me, except just for one of the IUis...the others weren't so bad.
