Starting iui ... what should I expect?

S

After 2 months of tests to figure out why I wasn’t getting pregnant after almost 10 mos, dr told me this am that I have a lower than usual egg count and an endometrial cyst on my left ovary. Every other test came back perfectly normal and I was so cautiously optimistic.. then this. I got so upset I gave myself a migraine and had to leave work.

ANYWAY we are forging ahead at full speed starting <a href="https://glowing.com/glow-fertility-program">iui</a> likely next week since I’m due to get my period in the next few days. Can someone tell me what to expect? Is it painful? What’s the deal with trigger shots? Stuff I should/shouldn’t eat? Side effects?

Wanted to ask my doc all this stuff but I kinda blacked out in the office... help much appreciated.
