Topic: Is this normal or should I call me RE?
So, yesterday after my IUI, the RE put a "sponge" in. (I guess it is the same basic idea as using an Instead cup) He said that there was no real proof that they actually did anything, and he honestly wasn't convinced that they did, but he used them just in case. Basically it was a sponge wrapped in what appeared to be plastic with tampon like pull strings on it that he put in after the IUI was done. He told me to leave it in for a couple of hours and pull it out. Well, when I pulled it out (sorry this is TMI) there was some brown liquid on the outside...it appeared maybe to be spotting or something but it was too dark?
Has anyone ever heard of these sponge things? Is that normal or should I call my doctor?
