Just wondering if there is anyone out there with a similar story - I'm sure this is just not coincidence!
I'm in my 2nd marriage, and have been TTC through both of them (10 years total!). Three years ago, newly remarried, I stopped taking birth control again and as suspected - nothing. DH had a s/a done (good), I had ultrasounds done (good), and was finally referred to a gyno for additional help. During our first visit, doctor told me to start taking prenatal vitamins, and booked me for an HSG test. I was terrified!
Monday September 20th came, and I bravely went to the hospital for the dreaded HSG. It was incredibly painful, but only for 20 seconds or so. My gyno did the test himself, and said it looks good to him, but it needs to be sent to the radiologist for official diagnosis. I had an appointment for results on Monday October 4th.
I was excited to get on with the process, and when the 4th rolled around I happily went to my appointment. My gyno told me that the HSG test came back "inconclusive". He could not do another test, but would need to book me in for a laparoscopic surgery. He was happy that he could fit the surgery in this month, and scheduled it for me on October 26th. I was upset, teary-eyed, and REALLY didn't look forward to the surgery. He asked me when my last period was, I told him "September 12". He said "I hope you don't get another one".
Had all the usual PMS leading up to October 10th, cramping, bloating, headache, except.......no AF. Symptoms continued all week long, when I finally gave in and POAS October 17th. !
Looking back at my calendar, I calculated that I conceived September 25th or 26th. Less than a week after the HSG test. I am so totally over the moon
It made my day to call the office and ask the secretary to please cancel my surgery appointment!
I got pregnant a few weeks after my hsg after 2 years of trying. All other tests came back normal which was very frustrating because in my eyes if something was wrong that would explain why I wasn't getting pregnant and the doctors could fix it. At any rate, I hear that sometimes the HSG "clears out the cobwebs" so to speak so that might have been what did it. Not to mention, after my HSG I stopped charting and stressing and just took the at home pee test because I had one left and surprise surprise...PREGGERS!
i had my hsg test on the 16th aug 2011, and ovulated yesterday, we BD after i had the HSG (same day) and the 17th and yesterday! so fingers crossed the HSG cleared out my cobwebs! HSG test showed the fluis flowing out of both tubes, so all clear! :-) xxxxxx
I'm in the same boat, bluidgrl87. I had my HSG test on the 21st, too! And AF is supposed to be here sometime this week but I've been having symptoms that is making me feel hopeful for this month! I really hope the HSG test helped boost our odds!
