I did take motrin before, It wasn't bad at all for me, I had no cramping etc...It was relatively quickly, was fine after, just a little tiny cramping during the day. I went to work after. However, a friend of mine had a lot of pain and cramping during the procedure. My Dr. quoted me a certain price, but it was almost double what I had to pay, when the hospital fees, her fees and the technician fees were all said and done. None of it was covered through my insurance. I hope yours is.

Good news is that it sort of (as my dr said) "clears out the cobwebs" and you have an increased chance for conception the 3 months following an HSG.

One thing I'll warn you about (TMI) is that (me and a friend, both had this). Wear a pad they give you the day of it, because the dye will come out that day....and what doesn't come out, can sort of almost turn glue-like, and I had what you might call "wadded up toilet paper" looking stuff coming out a week after. It's perfectly normal, but it's weird!

Best of luck to you and I hope yours is pain-free.
