Do And Do Not After An IUI Procedure

Service Details

As an IUI patient, you have numerous queries in your mind. What you should do and what you should not do after an IUI procedure are among them. Your doctor will advise you on this. However, to educate you, here are some do’s and don’ts:

Do’s after an IUI Procedure

Here are some steps that you must follow to make your IUI procedure successful:

  • Get some rest - After placing sperm in your uterus, your doctor will instruct you to rest for a while. To prevent discomfort, get plenty of rest for a few days after being released from the hospital. Stopping any household chores or travel is beneficial. If you experience any discomfort or pain, you should get some rest right away.
  • Eat a nutritious diet - After the IUI procedure, your doctor may advise you to eat a balanced diet. For optimal fertilisation, it is best if you maintain a healthy weight. A balanced diet will provide all the necessary nutrition for successful IUI. Consume foods high in vitamin D to increase your chances of getting pregnant
  • Maintain your optimism - IUI procedures can fail due to stress and anxiety. You should try to always think positively. Your mental health affects a few internal processes and the hormone release that occurs after an IUI procedure. Therefore, it will be beneficial if you maintain your mental health. Engage in a few worthwhile activities to keep your mind off of negative things.
  • Exercise lightly - You can start doing some exercises a few days after insemination. The uterus and other reproductive organs' blood flow will be improved. After a few days of rest, we recommend doing yoga and stretching.
  • Consult your doctor - Your hormone levels and pregnancy likelihood may need to be evaluated by your doctor. In addition to increasing the success rate of IUI, they provide hormonal support. Visiting your doctor after a week of insemination is the right course of action. They can also demonstrate how to confirm pregnancy.
  • Take the prescribed medications - Your doctor might recommend some drugs to increase the likelihood of fertilisation. Make sure you take your medications as directed by your doctor. The information listed above must always be followed. Depending on your health, your specialist may offer additional advice.

Don'ts after an IUI procedure

Following your IUI procedure, you should avoid the following few things:

  • Refrain from taking painkillers - You might experience pain and cramping after the IUI procedure, which is quite common. However, you must completely refrain from using painkillers. Consult your doctor before getting it if you're in a lot of pain. The success rate of IUI may be lowered if you take painkillers. 
  • Attempt to relax - Don't worry if you are going to have an IUI procedure. Your body's hormonal balance is impacted, which affects your chances of having a healthy pregnancy. After 14 attempts, some couples have succeeded in getting pregnant. So, there is no need for you to be concerned about the IUI failing on the first try. IUI failures can occur, but you can always try more than once. 
  • Steer clear of heavy lifting - Carry light loads whenever possible. It is among the most important things to avoid because it can cause cramps and occasionally harm the uterine lining.
  • Don't go swimming - Swimming should be avoided for 48 hours after insemination, despite the fact that it has no direct relationship to the success of the IUI procedure. Given its high likelihood of spreading infections, pool water should always be avoided.
  • Avoid exposing yourself to dangerous radiation - Avoid dangerous radiation exposure at work. You must refrain from using high radiation machines and chemicals after the IUI procedure. You should avoid all forms of radiation even after giving birth, according to our advice. The likelihood of pregnancy can be decreased by prolonged exposure to heat or direct sunlight.
  • Don't drink or smoke - Abuse of alcohol, tobacco, or drugs will cause issues with conception and infertility. You should stay away from them even after getting pregnant because they might lead to your child's abnormal growth or deformity.
