Anyone had this done? I have to go in to get this done at the Fertility doctor on Tuesday. I'm very nervous about it because I don't know what to expect, and whether it is painful or not.

They say a cathedar is going to be put in my uterine/cervix area and inject some type of salt water saline. Anyone had this done and can give me some input?

I had this done fairly recently. It just give them a better look at your lining than a regular ultrasound. The saline solution forces your walls to separate a bit to allow for easy viewing.

I shouldn't be painful. Uncomfortable, yes. Anything put in to your uterus can cause some form of cramping, but when I experienced it, it was uncomfortable and pressuring but not painful.

After the solution is put it, the catheter is taken out and they insert the ultrasound machine scope. Then they view what is there on the ultrasound machines monitor. It's quite fascinating actually.

I can't speak for anyone that has any abnormalities in their uterus such as cysts or maybe even blocked fallopian tubes, but It's not as unpleasant as the hysterosalpingogram which checks your tubes and if they are blocked and can cause some amount of discomfort and sometimes can be very painful for some. It wasn't for me when I had that done too.

If you are worried, a couple of Tylenol beforehand should help. Don't worry about the procedure, it doesn't take long at all. Maybe 10 +/- minutes

I had one in January and I was pretty nervous about it, but it turned out it wasn't bad at all for me. The most uncomfortable part for me was having the speculum inserted as I have a pretty tilted cervix. Once that was in place though, I didn't even feel the catheter go in.

Like Eliza said though, the hysterosalpinogram was much more unpleasant than the sono. I came out of the sono with just a little cramping that went away within an hour. With the HSG, I was in pain throughout the procedure.

Good luck and I promise, it's really not too bad
