if you've had one was it all clear, or were one or both tubes blocked? If the latter, what were your options?

I had a hycosy and all was clear. I found it uncomfortable and a little painful but it was bearable for the short amount of time it took to do. x

HSG for me and I would describe it as a little bit more than uncomfortable. Like Browny though it all came back as normal. Post a link to this on the DTTC thread if you want more first hand experience as I think we've nearly all had one over there

I've no experience of this but I really hope it goes well for you on Thursday (& good luck with your final teaching placement) x x

It's no secret my experience was horrific - I got a SHO who was doing it my first time unsupervised (was only told this after I made a formal complaint). He couldn't get equipment in (and I have no issues with smear tests etc). I had to wait until The senior consultant arrived to carry out procedure in the end & he used a numbing gel - I suggest asking for it to be used before they begin & also ask how experienced they are. If I had the consultant from the beginning I too would only describe minor discomfort but damage was done by then.
I suggest taking strong pain killers beforehand. Also dark pants & a sanitary towel incase you bleed afterwards.
My results were clear but I fell pregnant next cycle & I'm 100% convinced it was due to hsg as we were due to start fertility treatment in jan. Apparently it increases fertility for 2-4 months afterwards - consultant told me to have plenty of sex & I remember looking at him thinking my husband isn't coming near me again after what has just happened in here!! But we managed to Dtd 3 times before I was laid up for an operation & here we are expecting in aug. (Hsg end of nov)
The experience will never leave me & I can hand on heart say it traumatised me but from the boards I know I am an exceptional case. If we TTC again & I get sent for another hsg I will do it again in a heartbeat if it gets me pregnant - we've waited nearly 2 years for this. I would just go to my doctors first to ask for diazapam!!
all the luck in the world to you on Thursday saffron.

No experience, but wanted to wish you well for Thursday, and also hope that your placement goes well! xx

I had a HSG, and expected the experience to be much, much worse than it was. I actually found it easier and less uncomfortable than a smear. My results were all clear.

Thanks all. I'm worried about the procedure but more worried about the results. I have paracetamol, ibuprofen and diazepam at the ready.

Think of it as one more piece of the jigsaw towards the goal of having a child rather than a big deal if possible. It is the worst test (IMO) of all the fertility tests you might have but it is only one piece of the jigsaw. If, like us, every test comes back as normal you are no closer to having a child but you will have ruled out obvious causes. Good luck for it-if you're lucky you may get told on the day how it went although the formal report will go to the clinic. Xx

Please let us know how you get on.
While I found it horrendous, 6 weeks later when I got my bpf, I was also so relieved I didnt have to go through IVF etc.
I truly hope your results are clear and it helps you get your bpf.x

Thanks lovely ladies. It's over, and all is well. A bit sore, but very relieved. Took a while and two attempts to get the left one visible, so hopefully she cleared some build up and I'm now super fertile! Fx!

Glad to hear it wasn't too bad. Fingers crossed you are super fertile now x x
