sonohysterogram tomorrow (SHG) — The Bump
TTC after 35

sonohysterogram tomorrow (SHG)

Tomorrow I have to have the SHG (saline ultrasound).  I had one last summer so I know how it goes, but DH just asked me if we'll be able to TTC after it (I should O over the weekend, and I'm going to see him on Friday).  Tomorrow, Thursday, is either CD 10 or CD 11 depending on whether you count CD 1 as the day I started serious bleeding by about 7 pm or whether you count the next day as CD 1.  I just took an OPK and it's negative.  But now I'm freaking out since this whole trip this weekend to see DH was about TTC -- well, ok, also about seeing my husband, but you know what I mean.  I've been using Dr. Google and as far as I can tell it should be fine and *might* even help (assuming there's nothing wrong, that is).  I *don't* want to cancel the procedure, since my RE is insisting on my having it done before IVF, and it was really hard to get this appointment at my ob's office (only way insurance will cover it, otherwise it costs $825 to do it with the RE), but I will FREAK OUT if I ask the doctor about this tomorrow and he tells me we have to skip this cycle.  And no, I can't tell you when I usually O and whether it will be Friday (though even if that's CD12, that would seem a little early to me), because I only just had my first AF since my ectopic pregnancy, and before that for 6 months I was on fertility meds and doing the Ovidrel shot to time O, so I don't know anymore when O naturally happens.

Aaaggghhh!!

Re: sonohysterogram tomorrow (SHG)

  • When I had mine done my RE told me "nothing in the vagina for 24 hours", so you should be fine for the weekend. I did have a shorter cycle after mine but don't think it had anything to do with the SHG. 

    Good luck! Enjoy your weekend!!

  • Plus, just by the way, folks -- I was advised to take 600-800 mg of ibuprofen beforehand.  But I've done a little research and it looks like ibuprofen can affect O (delaying it etc).  So I'll be taking Tylenol instead just to be on the safe side.  Which won't work as well....
