I'm about to have my first IUI (Intrauterine insemination) on coming Monday. Doctor has advised me to get done under short general anaesthesia. I'm very scared. Does GA has any side effects? I have one mature follicle in my left ovary. Will my treatment succeed? Will I feel any pain during d procedure under GA?

hi Jayanthy, short GA doesn't have any major side effect.
you can do IUI with anaesthesia their won't be any pain.
anaesthesia can be used in cases with cervical narrow opening, or in case of anxiety.
