One cycle of superovulation with IUI doesn't give 100% pregnancy rate. Also with the follicle size you described, after injection of hCG, there is very rare chance of ovulation failure. Also menstrual like cramps doesn't indicate failure of treatment (Not being pregnant). Pregnancy is still a possibility. You can just wait for 2-3 more days & if you don't have periods, you can do pregnancy test.
