I've been referred for a HSG and a trans vaginal ultrasound. Can anyone fill me in on what I can expect...been reading around on the internet but I would like to compare this information to what real people say about it...
I've had both.
The HSG was uncomfortable, but generally not painful to me. The main issue was the catheter the radiologist used initially (to get into cervix) was too large, so that caused some initial pain. After that, it was just a bit uncomfortable. We could look at the dye on the screen real-time, and that was sort of neat. It took about 15-20 minutes from undressing to getting dressed. I had some cramping afterward, but like mild period cramps for about two hours.
The transvaginal was like a pap smear to me. It only started cramping a little bit after the first five minutes and my OB/GYN was really rooting around to find my second ovary (which we never did find).
Both simple and fairly painless procedures. The HSG was more uncomfortable than the TVU for me.
Hi. I have had both done and the only thing I can add to what Nikki Leigh said is to take you own panty liner as the ones they give you are like nappies. I would also take some pain killers with you. hope this helps xx
Hi, all I can add to what Nikki Leigh said is to take your own panty liner as the one they gave me was like a nappy. Also take some pain killers before you go as I found this helped me. hope this helps :-)
