Good afternoon, lovely TTCAL ladies. I have an SHG scheduled for Tuesday, and then it looks like next cycle will be our first Clomid cycle. I was just wondering if some people who have had an SHG and/or HSG can weigh in on the difference between the two. As I understand it, with the SHG you have saline injected into your uterus and they look at it with a US, and with an HSG you have dye injected and viewed with an x-ray. Does that sound right? Will they be able to see if my tubes are clear with the SHG? She mentioned wanting to make sure they were clear before giving me Clomid, but then I've heard conflicting information about whether an SHG will show that.
I'm also wondering if you had one if you were given any restrictions on sex afterwards...I know one person told me she was, but she wasn't given antibiotics...I was given antibiotics, so maybe that means no restrictions because infection isn't a concern? I want to make sure I don't miss my FW, which will start pretty much right after the test.
I'm planning to call my doctor as well, but I'd appreciate any and all input anyone wants to share. If you've made it this far...
