I had one last month and mine was also extremely painful. I actually couldn’t even finish the last tube. Needed to get it out, I was shaking so much. I’m going into surgery tomorrow for a hysterscopy and exploratory laproscopy so my FS is going to do the hsg again while i’m under a general anesthetic. 

I was on strong painkillers and as soon as they wore off the pains were so bad so I took some more. The pains came back around 9 pm so took some more and slept through. The next day I had some mild pains on and off but the day after that was pretty much back to normal. Just keep up the medication and hopefully the pain should be nearly gone.

Are you still bleeding? If so you need to see a doctor. 

If it’s just the cramps I think they’ll pass. (Not that cramps aren’t horrible but the main concern is the bleeding stops) 

I hope you have managed to continue counselling.

I have chronic pelvic pain which makes everything hurt worse/longer, so i had more lasting pain than you should expect. I had a very painful HSG with bad pain the day-of and the day after which slightly decreased each day over the next couple days. It took 5-6 days to get all the way back to my normal pain level, but it was only bad enough to affect my actions for 2-3 days after. I had light bleeding day-of and spotting for a couple days after. My doc said as long as the pain was decreasing and not worsening, the bleeding stopped, and no signs of infection (smelly discharge, fever, worsening pain,) I shouldn’t worry. But like I said, the chronic pain changes things so if you aren’t feeling better in a couple days, or if you keep bleeding, i’d call your doc to be safe.

Sorry it was painful for you, too!

Mine was a breeze BUT my RE told me it’s usually only painful if there is a blockage -did they find one? I definitely bled afterwards though…
