I'm afraid of everything too, and was stressing about my HSG the whole month before it! For me, it wasn't bad at all! I think everyone is different! I took 4 advil, and also asked them if I could have something for me nerves. They gave me some valium, and I think that's what helped! It not only relaxes your nerves, but also your muscles. I would definitely ask them if they can prescribe you one pill before the procedure! Good luck!
It's not bad just a tad bit uncomfortable plus I've go a tilted uterus so it was hard to get the dye in and they had to wiggle it around when the dye goes in u can feel it but it's over before u know it. Don't worry couple of pain killers will help! X
Procedure itself wasn't all that bad, a few short, sharp stabbing feelings and just a pressured, "full" feeling by the end. I got to watch the xray images on the screen was they were doing it, very interesting! Helped distract me, too.
About 3 hours afterwards I started getting pains in my abdomen which lasted until this morning, when I woke up finally feeling a lot better. A couple of stabby pains throughout the day but nothing like it was.
Also had a TERRIBLE stomach ache but that may be because I took Diclofenac instead of ibuprofen as it's stronger, before the procedure. I've got problems with stomach acid, weak patches in the stomach lining & hiatus hernia so it's likely that that caused it. However, most of the pain was along the bottom wall of my stomach, so it could just be that I was very sensitive to the dye and it irritated the tissue there.
Either way, I feel fine by today with only minimal spotting. Think it's stimulated my uterus a bit as I had EWCM (albeit still slightly tinged with old blood) this morning and it's only CD10.
