HSG Test Today

Hi Ladies,


So I had my HSG test today. I was super nervous going in as I was fearful of the pain - I took 2 extra strength advil about an hour before (and 2 more since then).


What's really sad is that driving to the appointment, I had called my doctor to see the results of the HCG test I had yesterday - to ensure it was negative before doing the HSG.. and when she said negative and I got off the phone, I actually cried. I KNEW it would be negative but I was hoping that it wasn't - I thought maybe because in the last month (after I found out I would never ovulate on my own) I wasn't stressed because there was nothing I could so I guess I was secretly hoping my body would relax and I would ovulate.. anyway, no such luck!


After 20 minutes of laying on the table (literally watching the second hand go around the clock), the doc arrived - she was from the fertility clinic that I will be going to. Super nice girl - talked me through what she was going to do. She said she had to attach something to my cervix and that I would feel a pinch - but I didn't so I thought I was in the clear for pain... then came the dye. It was the most painful 2 minutes I have ever experienced in my life!!! But once it was in, there was no more pain (and now I only have very mild cramping).


The bad news is she think one of my tubes may be blocked as no dye went on that side. She said its possible it isn't and the dye just didn't want to go that way but the only way to find out for sure is surgery. She said they would talk to me more once I get my appointment - which now I can finally get because all mine and DH's tests were done (this was the last one). I will call my doc tomorrow so remind them to get my files over to the RE!!!


Anyway, just thought I'd give everyone an update on me!


Hope everyone else is doing ok and we start to see some BFP's soon :)

Oh Amy I am sorry. I know how heartbreaking it can be, even when you know you are not pregnant, to hear someone else say it. Its like it is more real when someone else tells you that. Im glad the pain was over fast for you. I hope your next appt is soon so you can get some definate answers!


Best of luck sweetie!

My file was sent to the RE office last week so I hope to get a call soon. But I was already advised the wait list is 4 to 6 months :(

Boooo!!! I am so sorry you have to wait that long! Is that the only RE in your area? I know there aren't many out there but by chance if there was any other place in your area, would the wait be any less?
