Positive HSG Experience :)

Hi Ladies,

Just wanted to share my HSG story as I read so many before the test!

It was a piece of cake for me, thankfully!  It took about 5 minutes.  I had a little bit of period-like cramping when the balloon was inflated and again when the dye was injected, but it wasn't bad at all.  I did take 4 advil.  Both tubes are clear!  Here's to one more month trying on our own before we move forward with IUI and Clomid!

Me 28 DH 29 ttc since January 2011 CD 3 b/w showed elevated TSH and prolactin CD 21 b/w confirmed ovulation 1/2012 diagnosed with Hashimoto's hypothyroidism and started Synthroid S/A awesome count and motility, kruger morphology 5%, low end of normal but RE said this is fine HSG June 2012 - All clear IUI + Clomid Round 2 worked!!!!

    Wow, you're lucky.

    Mine wasn't awful, but even if it hadn't hurt at all, I don't think I would call it positive (the whole lying on the x-ray table with my legs splayed out while like 5 radiology students mulled around might have something to do with that...)

    The 5 radiology students would have made it worse for me for sure!  I had a super sweet lady PA do the procedure and one friendlyfemale nurse assisting.  They talked me through everything.  I also think that since it was at my RE's office instead of the hospital, they had all the right equiptment and expertise.

    I am still having mild period-like cramps hours later though which isn't particularly fun.  Don't get me wrong...it wasn't a day at the park, but it went as positive as it could have gone and way better than what I expected after reading so many stories!
