Hi everybody. This is my first time posting in here but since I just started into the diagnostic testing phase of TTC I thought I'd post in here. I am getting an HSG done in about a month and have a few questions.
1. How much does it hurt....REALLY? Does it depend on the circumstances?
2. If there are blockages, then what? What do they do about it?
3. How much did yours cost and did insurance pay for it? (Still waiting to find out).
4. Any success stories?
Overall....I'm terrified. I honestly almost want to push it forward another month because I'm so scared of the pain. I would love to hear from anyone who has had one!
It honestly does depend. Mine was painless, I don't even know that I needed a tylenol and don't remember cramping afterwards, whereas some people find it excrutiating and most people are somewhere in between.
There are times where the actual HSG dye pushes open any blockages
Some people are more fertile after, although I don't know that anyone here got pregnant right after one without doing other interventions as well like clomid and IUI
I think I had to pay a few hundred for mine, but I had different insurance then and it might be covered better under my new insurance

insurance covered mine both times.
Both were no more painful than a pap, just uncomfy for a few minuts and mild cramping after.
I had no blockages on either, can't answer that for you.
I conceived the cycle of my second one, but miscarried shortly after. Not sure it helped since we did IUI for the first time that cycle.

Thanks ladies. From what I'm reading online, I just have no idea what to expect. Some have no pain, some feel it was the most excruciating pain ever! My doctor said it wouldn't be bad for me because I've had 3 vaginal deliveries.....but I'm skeptical, haha. I wish they did something for the pain. I worry that Ibuprofen won't cut it! Yeesh I'm scared.
Lash - I guess in case there are any blockages? My doctor said that sometimes blockages or scar tissue can build up because of/after delivery. He's actually kind of puzzled that I was able to have 3 children so easily and so close together and now I can't get pregnant. I hope the HSG test is really what I need to be doing. This is all so discouraging and confusing.
I'm 30. My 3 day blood work was textbook perfect. I had the AMH test done yesterday, and I'm waiting for the results. My 21 day progesterone test will be later this month followed by the HSG of course probably at the beginning of December. My cycles are pretty much picture perfect. Everything with me is textbook so far. SO maybe that's why he thinks a blockage may be the issue? IDK. Sigh.
Oh, and my husband's sperm analysis was great too (above average).
