Hi there,

Thanks for your query.

I needed more information, such as, whether there is pain, redness in your leg; any pain in joints of your right leg.

The problem doesn't appear to be due to Progesterone + IUI. It may be either cellulitis (bacterial infection of the tissues) or formation of blood clot in the deep veins of right leg (called DVT).

Get a Color Doppler Flow study at the earliest to confirm/rule out DVT. If confirmed, you will need blood thinner injections/tablets. If it is cellulitis, then a course of antibiotics + NSAIDs will be required.

Consult your doctor and apprise him of my opinion. I am certain that he will agree with me, order required tests, and- based on the reports- will prescribe suitable/modified treatment as advised.

If you find my response helpful and informative, do not forget an “excellent” (5-star rating) to my answer, to ENCOURAGE ALL doctors- engaged in social service- to render sound advice to the FREE queries.

Take care
