Well,  this may not be what you want to hear, but my HSG was horrible.  I went into mild shock from the pain and had horrible cramping, nausea, sweats, chills, shaking uncontrollably and finally diarrhea (in the bathroom, not on the table haha).  I was there for 2.5 hours past the time I expected to be there, recovering in an empty exam room.

BUT, mine was horrible because I had blockages in both tubes.  Because of the type of HSG that was performed (sterile water with live u/s monitoring vs. dye and xrays) my dr asked me when we determined that both tubes were blocked if I wanted her to try to open them right then by slightly increasing the water pressure.  Since DH and I had decided against surgery if the blockages were permanent I told her to try it.  It was when she increased the pressure that the pain was greatest.  My left tube cleared within a minute, she turned up the pressure again - the world started spinning and I thought I was going to throw up.  The right tube cleared and I felt better but not great.

The good news is, because we were able to clear the blockages our daughter was conceived 8 days later.  For me it was painful, but sooooooo sooooooo worth it.  I would do it all over again to have this precious baby.

My suggestion would be to take someone with you in case you do have a bad reaction to the procedure.  I didn't have anyone with me so I had to wait until I was confident in driving myself home.  Also, make sure you take Motrin or Aleve 30 mins before - I forgot to do that and it may not have been that bad if I had remembered!
