So I just got back from the hospital's radiology lab after an unsuccessful HSG. Just as a background/reminder, our doctor let us try a medicated cycle with Femara just to see if we'd get lucky (obviously it didn't work) before doing the HSG b/c we're 100% OOP.
It was scheduled for this morning, and after about 20 minutes of my RE trying to get the cath into my cervix, he had to stop and tell me he couldn't do the test. He said my cervix has a strong curve and a very tiny opening. Together, those two things made it impossible for him to "catch" the cervix with the cath to get the dye in.
He said in 20 years, this has happened to him twice and that it's very abnormal. He didn't seem too concerned about this affecting my chance at getting pregnant though, b/c he said "If blood can get out, sperm can get in."
Still, has anyone heard of this happening? I can't tell you how many times he said "This is very unusual." Not really the most promising thing to hear your doctor say on repeat.
He said our other option is to take pain meds/numbing gel and have him dilate my cervix before trying it again.
