That was nice of him to go through with it despite being embarrassed, hopefully my boyfriend sticks to his word and get his done too. Good luck with your HSG tomorrow and please share how everything goes.

I just got back from my HSG. My tubes are open and clear. They said there were no blockages or anything. Literally took about 60 seconds to do. I just had to undress from the waist down then lay back on the table with my feet in stirrups. Then the metal clamp thing was inserted to open my cervix a little. That felt like a little bit of pressure for a couple seconds. Then he inserted the catheter and that part gave me a little bit of cramping, but not bad at all and it maybe lasted 3-4 seconds. Then they started pushing the dye through and I didn't feel that part at all. You can see it going through them on the screen. Then it was over and I was off. They provided a pad and told me that I would probably leak the dye over the next 24 hrs and that it will be sticky. On my drive home I had the slightest cramps. But hardly even noticeable and much less painful than period cramps. They lasted about 10 minutes only so we will see if they come back or not? I took tylenol about 30 minutes before the procedure so maybe thats why i dont feel pain?

I dont think I mentioned they do it with x-ray.
I don't have insurance right now so it cost me $495.
The saline ultrasound I did yesterday cost $450. So I spent $945 for 2 minutes worth of procedures!

@jmack54- I'm so excited to hear how everything goes! And good luck!

@ashley2pink- I'm so glad everything is good and clear! How are you feeling now? I did hear it could be a bit expensive, but thankfully my insurance covers it.

That's great your insurance covers it.
I feel fine. I had no pain after the small amount of light cramping. I did have some bleeding after though. At first it was light spotting. The next day I suddenly had more, but it wasn't heavy, but more than just spotting. I am actually still spotting old brown blood today. Im not sure how long is normal to spot after it, but it has been a little over 48 hrs since I had it done

I finally had my test today!! Everything looked normal and there were no blockages. Hopefully this test has been beneficial in helping me conceive soon. I apologize for being away these couple days, I've been sooooo busy with work and everyday things, but couldn't wait to give an update. I felt so much pressure during the moments of the catheter and dye going in. I had little leakage afterwards and my bf was there by my side the whole time. My personal experience wasn't too bad , but thank you ladies for sharing your experiences. That gave me a idea of what I too could possibly experience during my test. Next up I'll see about him possibly getting a SA if that's part of the next steps recommended by my doctor, but I'm excited to find out where we go from here.

Glad it went well and that your tubes are open! My experience was the same- a little uncomfortable. I would say similar to getting a pap. Tubes were open so that's good! Unfortunately my insurance didn't cover it so that was a big bummer. We are meeting with my doctor on April 5th to review results of my blood work and husbands SA.

Jmack54- thanks! Glad your tunes are open as well. I have to meet with my doctor as well to go over my results, but I'm just glad everything came back normal. And sorry to hear your insurance doesn't cover it , that sucks! Hope all goes well when you go review your results/ husband's SA and your blood work comes back good . My boyfriend has yet to do his SA lol I think he changed his mind.
