HSG X-Ray Study

I should NOT surf the net the night before a procedure to find out more about it. Now I'm scared to death that it will be horrible pain from cramping during the procedure. I'm taking ibuprofen prior to the procedure to help me relax but when I'm starting out so worried that'll be hard to do.

I wasn't worried til last night and I started surfing comments by women who have had an HSG run and they all said it was horrible and the pain was intense. Hmmm.

So I have the procedure here in about 4 hours and I'll post back to let you all know a) just how horrible it was or b) just how nervous I got for no reason.

Anyone have this procedure and could pass along any feedback?


  1. I have had it done...The ibuprofen should help with the cramping. And I hate to tell you this, but it was painful for me. The second time (last year) was easier than the first. It could be worse if there is blockage.....wish I had better news for you. Try to relax as much as possible and think happy thoughts...

  2. I had one done and it was not bad at all. I had no cramping during or after. It was by far the easiest thing I had done to get hwere I am.
    I am still praying for you!
