I’m so sorry for your loss and all that you have been through. I had an HSG done in November and it wasn’t bad at all! The procedure is supposed to be quick, maybe like 5 mins total. Mine was longer, but that’s only because the machine stopped working half way through, so I started to get a little impatient, which then caused me to get worked up and uncomfortable. I took two ibuprofen about 45 mins prior to the procedure. I hope yours goes as smoothly as possible. Just keep telling yourself you are doing this for your future child. Good luck. 🙂

I had one done in March and it wasn’t bad at all. The only part that hurt was when they put the speculum in but after that I couldn’t feel a thing. Like @Yellow.Clover:, I also took ibuprofen before to help ease any pain or nerves. I was incredibly anxious about it but it was super easy.

I had mine done in March as well. I also took Ibruprofen to ease the cramps. I felt just fine afterwards. But it hurt a lot. Sounds like it’s different for everyone. It was really short though like @Yellow.Clover: said. Whatever it takes right? Good luck hun!

Just to reiterate again, ibuprofen is important not just for pain/cramps but also because it helps prevent your tubes from spasming when the dye goes in.  It’ll be over really quickly, you’ll do great!

I’m so sorry you’re going through all that hun. I had an HSG last month and it wasn’t bad. A little pinch when they insert the speculum and catheter and then some cramping when he injected the dye. But it was all over within a couple of minutes and as soon as he was done all pain went away. I also took 800mg of ibuprofen an hour ahead of time. GL girl it will be ok!!
