I had one 6 years ago and I have another one on Oct 16. I would HIGHLY recommend that you take a couple of Advil 2 hours before the appointment and 2 Extra Strength Tylenol 30 minutes before your appointment. That's what my RE suggested and I was soooo thankful for the heads up.
I didn't find it too bad. I'm glad I took the meds though. It felt like an ackward pap. They use a speculim and open your cervix and insert something so they can get a sample of your uterus lining. They was some cramping (like AF cramps) for a few minutes and then it was all done. I spotted a bit that day but that was it and I felt fine. I took the day off work because I wasn't sure how I would feel after, so I indulged in shopping therapy.
I seriously recommend taking some sort of pain medication before you go in there. I had an EB and I'm not really sure what my doctor did up there, but it was awful. They had to give me fruit juice and make me lie down after because I was really light headed and nauseous. The nurse made fun of me.
When I sat up on the table blood poured out everywhere. I bled through my pad and my jeans before I got home. I cramped pretty bad the rest of the day and bled for about a week after.
No one gave me the heads up about the meds. I had no idea. The doc said I probably wouldn't feel a thing. I'm probably just an odd case.
I just had one last month and I'm having another one next Tuesday. Take a couple of Motrin and you should be fine. I took an anaprox, so if you can get some of that, do. It was nothing. It was a little uncomfortable, but it didn't hurt at all. I was holding my husbands hand and taking a deep breath and clenching down to get ready for it, and my doctor asked what I'd say if he said that he was done. It was a breeze, and I didn't feel a thing. Good luck sweetie.
