Is this the test where they blow dye through your tubes? I had it done but it was called something else. If it’s the same test I understand the pain level. During the actual test i think it was the worst pain I’ve ever felt in my life and my tubes were open. I remember being crampy after but not terrible. I would call your RE to ask if bad cramping at home is normal to make sure. I hope you feel better!

i thought i had every test at the RE’s office.  i never heard of femvue although it sound similar to the HSG. 

i just had mild cramping for a couple days after the test.  i think they said to take tylenol preemptively.  hope you feel better soon! if they pain becomes unbearable definately call your nurse ASAP.

I’ve had an hsg, but I was in pain for a good 1 1/2 days afterwards and none of my tubes were blocked. I would just take it easy and rest up!

On a side note…I got pregnant the second month after my hsg. 😉

Saline and air bubbles is an HSN. I actually found that more uncomfortable than the HSG which is very unusual. Most are the opposite. I think IUIs aren’t as bad as an HSN. (I haven’t had an IUI though)

daniellemc :  I had an HSG and though I haven’t had children yet I can’t help but think that must be what labor feels like.  Though my HSG lasted one minute and labor can last days…..

Sorry you felt uncomfortable but so will be L&D.  Your body will forget how bad it hurt and it will all have been worth it.
