Has anyone done the x-ray?
I get a call tomorrow to see if I can get in this week, I'm a little nervous but excited also.
I looked it up on a few websites but wanted to know other peoples experience?

Had it done a year ago. What do you want to know?

About the pains if they were bad.
Also what exactly what happens. My doctor didn't really go into detail or anything about it.

They feed a tube up your cervix (uncomfy, but not painful). Then they put dye through the tube to fill your uterus and flow out your tubes into your abdomen. There's pressure and you'll feel a bit crampy, but not bad.



They do an ultrasound/X-ray thing the whole time so you can see it working the whole time. Then they give you a pad and send you home.



Make sure they give you antibiotics and Vicodin or something for after just in case you cramp pretty badly (most don't, but a few do).

I've had two HSGs, one in April 09 one in April 12. The pain wasn't bad, it felt like period like cramps for 10-15 minutes after the procedure. My doctor never gives pain medicine or antibiotics. Here's the link to my first HSG

oh ok , thank you for explaining it all for me!
They are having me take a pregnancy test the day before and pick up a prescription of something it started with a D I believe .
They also told me to take something for pain before I go in, but I'm kind of worried about the cramping after.
I was worried about the pain because my doctor kept bringing up how painful it is, it sounded more like he didn't want to waste his time with us.

I'm going to check it out now! Thank you!
I would prefer if they sent me home with pain medications because I get pretty bad cramps sometimes.
I've tried almost everything for the bad cramps and nothing really worked.
But hopefully these cramps will not be as bad .

I read it, and that made me feel so much better about going in!!
I hope I have a good experience like you!



How long after you got your HSG done did you become pregnant??
