The Bump Baby Registry
Now is the perfect time to start your Baby Registry!START A REGISTRY
My doctor brought it up to me yesterday for the first time. Does it hurt? How long does it take to do? Is it a myth or true that it increases your chance of pregnancy afterwards?
Re: Tell me about HSG...
It's true! kinda sorta..
The HSG proceedure puts dye into your tubes, so if your IF is caused by a blockage you would have improved results. I have seen numbers in the single digits....wanna say 2% increase in pg rates out of 100 women?
So if you aren't ovulating it's not going to help. But if your all blocked up in there it *might* make a difference.
HSG caused me some cramping. The humiliation factor is much higher, imho, with this proceedure than some of the othere I had. Even IUI was better becuase it was much, much faster.
ditto the above post... I had some mild cramping and it was uncomfortable...but not painful. It was pretty fast though. The whole set up took longer but the procedure was only a couple of minutes.
I was so scared and crying before it...looking back I don't know why....it wasn't THAT bad...
I just met a women stressing about this at the RE the other day. Ditto pp...it wasn't that bad. I have heard that some women find it excruciating, but over all, it was one of the easier procedures i experienced. I think everyone has different experiences with each procedure. I know that i have had some performed twice and they were like night and day.
I was one of those women that it hurt. The dye and stuff hurt (I have heard it's like being 10 weeks pregnant all at once) and I was a little crampy, dizzy, naseous for about an hour afterwards. I was really glad that my mom had gone with me because she drove us home. I could have made it - but i made it a lot nicer to be the passenger. By the time we got home and I went to lay down - 30-45 mintues - I felt so much better, and when I woke up from my nap - I felt back to normal. But, I had asked the same question and most women said it was no big deal for them - so I do think I was in the minority.
For me it hurt after like crampy/bloaty.... It was neat to see the dye go through though ! It is not bad, and you will be glad to get it over with.
ETA I had it done the cycle before this BFP!
I honestly don't remember having any cramping or bleeding after. But in the middle of it I heard "uh oh!" The stupid dr. did it wrong and had to take it out and start all over again. That was NOT fun, but I am pretty sure NOT typical.
Mainly I wanted to make sure that my client, whose kitchen I was working on, was not the dr to perform the procedure. I had to be very specific when I made the appointment to make sure he didn't see my business. I figured that would be awkward later in his kitchen walkthrough! Hahaha
