I am diagnosed with PCOS, endometriosis, adenomyosis, SIN, & gluten intolerance. Just finished Clomid (5 days), FSH/Bravelle (8 days), hCG trigger (1 day), & IUI (unsuccessful-lab results yesterday). Also, Progesterone vaginal suppositories nightly from the day after IUI until negative preg. test 2 days ago.
Staining & spotting started 4 days ago, progressing to full flow yesterday. This is without a doubt the most painful period I have ever experienced! It feels more like the miscarriage that I had at 12 weeks a few years ago. I'm usually pretty tough - but tylenol, ibuprofen, vicoden, heat - nothing is touching this! Doc says wait it out until ultrasound on Monday. Having cold sweats, nausea, dry heaves, huge clots, extra heavy flow, and severe cramping that makes movement or conversation difficult sometimes - advice?
Is this normal after this type of protocol? Has anyone else experienced similar? Home alone, as hubby is on work travel (and my mom is 1200 miles away).
