HSG X-Ray Study Update

Well, I survived. For anyone who wonders what this procedure is like I'll do my best to recap my afternoon:

~1pm: Take motrin tablets
~2pm: Took one Xanax for anxiety
~3pm: Showed upto Iowa Radiology and...
- changed into a gown
- led to xray room and begins much like a pap
- then feel more pressure and receive dye
- dye caused intense cramping for approx 3-4 minutes
- cleaned up and allowed to redress
~3:40: Left the office and came home

I would say on a level of 1-10 (10 being worst pain imaginable) it was about a 6. I've had much worse procedures but still this one ranks in the list of "glad it's over, don't want to do it again."

Best news: Everything is open and we are ready to start another round of Femera this next cycle. *hugs* Thanks for the well wishes here as well as in my email box.


  1. Glad the procedure went well. Hope the results are good,too.

  2. I'm glad to hear the procedure and results went well. ((HUGS))
