I wish I saw your post earlier. I just had one last month and survived. I hope your experience wasn't that bad. I have to admit it was a bit painful but only for a minute the rest was just uncomfortable. The good news is it is supposed to clear our any debris and make you more fertile next cycle. I will let you know if that was true for me this month. Whatever news you got it is good to know. You were either clear-yay or blocked-but at least you know your next step and don't hav eto waste time with what won't work. Best of luck to you!
I had one done last year. while they were inserting it I had cramps that feel like AF is coming thats all the discomfort I had and I was a bit sore afterwards, both my tubes are open though so if there is a problem it may hurt worse.
its such a peace of mind knowing afterwards that I recommend it to anyone TTC.
Definitely take Motrin about an hour before the procedure. I experienced pretty severe cramping with mine. I know some women have more and less cramping, but be prepared for some no matter what. Good luck!
I had my first HSG done last week and it was not as bad as I expected. In case you don't know what exactly happens, you go to radiology and put on a gown and lay under a gaint xray machine. A doctor will insert a catheder and blow up a balloon that will dialate your cervix. Then they will insert the dye and you watch it flow through the uterus and tubes on a screen while they take xrays. I had no pain at all but I have heard of other women having some bad cramps when they dialate you. I have been pregnant before though, so he said my uterus has already been expanded and that's why it didn't hurt. Best of luck to you!
I had an HSG done and was SOO nervous. I think once i got over the nerves it wasn't that bad. The only thing that was a bit painful but more uncomfortable was the speculum. The actual catheter insert/dye part didn't hurt at all. Really no cramping or anything. I did spot/bleed for about 4 days after.
