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'm going in for my 1st HSG on Monday morning and I am definitely a bit nervous!

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.
