HSG Test - Painful? Not for me!

flight321 - February 3

Hello,

I had my first HSG test today. Let me tell you that after reading about other women's experiences on the internet prior to my test, I was very scared about how painful it maybe. I was told to take 3 ALLEVE one hour prior to the test. I thought "holy cow, 3 alleve? Just give me valium!"

I told the radiologist techs about my anxiety over the pain, but they were very caring, calm and gentle.

Let me tell you that I felt no real pain. Its similar to a pap, only a tad more annoying since they have to inject dye (and it was a bit cold in the room-brrr). When the dye was injected there was pressure and a nauseating feeling for just a few seconds. It was almost like indigestion, only in my lower regions. Then they told me to turn slightly to the right then left, and this decreased the pressure...and then it was over! I think the alleve helped. Fortunately my tubes were not blocked :)

I am hoping my experience will lessen your anxiety about the test too. Good luck :)

-Hillary
