Mine really was not bad at all. I had very little cramping. Everybody is different. Before mine I read all the same stories - as well as people who said the same thing I am saying - went in expecting the worst and then nothing! Hoping you are like me!!
Thanks! I read some more experiences from people last night and someone said it was the most excruciating pain ever - worse than her two vaginal child births and kidney transplant! Now I'm scared!
STOP READING THOSE STORIES!!!
It can be bad. The tech with me asked me if I had kids & when I said no she said well then take your period pain times 100. She explained it was horrible. Not exactly what I want to hear right before. BUT...mine was not bad. My husband was with me. I have pretty bad cramps day 1 & 2 of my period. Not bad enough to not be able to function. But if I am off work, I sit home in my PJs. Usually I take some IBprofen & move on. So the HSG was pretty much like my bad cramps but kind of continuous while they were putting the catheter or whatever in. Then when they were done & pulled it out, it was all over. They told me to take about 800 mg of IBprofen an hour before then after as needed. But I had no pain after. However, I literally had no blocks. So if you have some blocks & the dye moves it, I can imagine maybe a little more discomfort. All in all, I have no horrible things to say about the experience. Just stop reading all the google stuff so when you go in you can have a more clear calm mind. It can only be worse if you are sick with worry.
