Hi all! Being this is my first post, I'm hoping I'm in the right spot I'm 38 and DH is 38 - we're TTC #1. Had an HSG done on the 16th, tubes were open (yay!) and i had slight spotting and period like cramps for 3-4 days afterwards. Well, had a +OPK on CD17, so we BD on CD17 and CD18 (yesterday). Question I have is...I had period like cramps yesterday afternoon and all day today. Like it's from having sex. I'm assuming I'm ovulating soon, but it certainly doesn't feel like ovulation cramps to me. More like menstrual cramps.
Just wondering if anyone else has had an increase in cramping after an HSG around ovulation or has had more cramping when BDing around ovulation. Maybe my eggs or corpus luteum is causing the pain. Wanted to know if anyone else has been in the same boat?
After talking to my RE, she said that it's typically from the dye and it can inflame the ovaries? Not sure if that's true, but the next month I didn't have any pain. Maybe I had a cyst on my ovary too, although, they didn't do an ultrasound. Good luck to you!
