So tomorrow I go for my HCG so I can get my HSG on friday. What should I expect. They said I have to do a fleet enema a couple of hours before my test. How is that??

Wanted to wish you luck with both! As for the enema.....I've never done an HSG (yet anyway) but everything I've read on JM about them never said anything about doing an enema first. Just to take some pain reliever as it'll make you cramp. I'd do a search here on JM on HSG and see what other gals have to say about it and then call your doctor to confirm. Good Luck and KUP!!

I just had my HSG this morning, I had no prep except taking a good dose of ibuprophen and tylenol half an hour before the procedure. I had one done three years ago, today's was better since I knew what to expect. Good luck!!!

Lucky mother to five!

Please ask your doctor why you need the enema...I'm confused on that and I want to know now LOL.
Never had one done but I am told the Tylenol and ibuprofen help alot pre-procedure. The people I know actually took Ibuprofen for 16 hours (every 4 hrs four times) and they said that helped the most (they are frequent visitors of these types of tests so they have actually compared). None of them needed a enema.

And good luck at your appointment!
