Cool

I had the HSG done, it was like awful cramps, most likely because of my tube having some blockage, but they gave me pain pills that worked pretty good, and I was off work for a day to recoup. So it's not really that bad.

My experience with my HSG was the same as Trisha's. Take 2 midol about 1.5 hours prior. The pain was not intense. It felt like bad period cramps and they went away within an hour after the test.

This test is typically performed to see that your tubes are open and free of blockage. If there is minor blockage, the dye sometimes flushes it out. After the dye is inserted, the dr watches the flow and your uterus via x-ray. The uncomfortable part for me was lying there with the speculum inserted with my legs straight out.

Good Luck.

My experience was similar to Glinda's and Trisha's-painful, but tolerable cramping-even into my legs...but of course my tubes were blocked. Good luck, I hope it is an easy time for you!

Thanks for all of the great information. For me, it is nice to know what is coming up, pain or no pain! I have the procedure scheduled for next thursday on a long lunch break.
