- It is very common for women to have some vaginal discharge following IUI. This is normal and nothing to worry about. It is not “leakage” from the IUI but rather cervical mucus which has been dislodged during the procedure.

- You may even have some slight spotting, which again, is normal.

- Some women experience mild cramping and discomfort in the days after IUI. This does not mean that anything has gone wrong, but it does mean that you should take some extra time to rest and be kind to yourself.

- Sex after IUI is allowed and sometimes even encouraged: intercourse and orgasm can cause the uterus to contract, which can help push the sperm towards the fallopian tubes and the egg. Your doctor may advise a short waiting period of up to 48 directly after the procedure, but after that it may be a good idea.

Did you know that for some women, FET success rates can actually be much higher than fresh embryo transfers? A study published earlier this year by researchers at Stanford University found that in women over 35 with high progesterone levels, frozen embryo transfers were 73% more likely to result in an ongoing pregnancy than a fresh transfer. Evidence is building in favor of FET for specific patient populations, with very exciting implications for how we make decisions about embryo transfers.

Through the help of IVF, 18 years ago, Dr. Surrey assisted with the birth of this young woman. Now she is back at SCRC to freeze her eggs for the future. Nothing makes us happier than seeing young people preparing for their future. Thank you for believing in Dr. Surrey and SCRC! http://bit.ly/2zCUj3W

During your time in high school most sex ed. courses explained how not to get pregnant. Per the New York Times, we're now finding out that fewer than half of university students were able to correctly identify the age at which a woman’s fertility declines, according to a new study, and fewer than one in five knew when a man’s fertility declines. Should we also be teaching our young adults how to get pregnant as well?
