Painful IUI?

I had my first <a href="">IUI</a> today and felt that it was quite painful :/ the doctor said my cervix and uterus are off to the left side and tilted up so it took her a bit to get yo there and she said it was tricky. I felt sharp pain during he procedure and I am still cramping a lot now (it's been about 30-40 mins). Anyone else had a similar experience?
