I Survived the HSG…

Filed under: prep for IVF #1 — by Jess @ 12:27 am

So I had my HSG today and am very happy to report that for once we got good news, everything is all clear and wide open. My mom came with me for the hour and a half drive and we went out to eat at Olive Garden before the test. I was quite nervous once we got to the hospital because I have heard so many different stories of how this test went for different people. Thankfully mine wasn’t too bad. It was uncomfortable, definitely uncomfortable, but it was done and over quick enough. I did bleed a bit, more than the doc said is typical when she pulled the catheter out, and I am still spotting but not that bad. I feel like I have period cramps, mostly in my back. But, its nothing more than I get a day or two before my period. I am glad that this is done and over. Super glad it came out normal. I needed good news today. Last night I had a dream that the did the scan and when they looked at the screen they discovered I didn’t have Fallopian tubes. The doctor just looked at me and shrugged and said, “I guess you weren’t born with them, tough break” and walked out of the room. I woke up after this and looked at the clock and realized it was all just a dream but man, it freaked me out a bit!

So now we have one more thing checked off of our little IVF checklist. Next step is to call the clinic on Monday and schedule an appt to meet with the doc to find out what med protocol he thinks will be best for our first IVF cycle! Wooohoooo! Then Jeff and I have to go learn how to due the injections….fun times! Thankfully, a couple of the nurses I work with are willing to do any IM shots I may need in the evenings, since I work the 3-11 shift. One of the nurses was just a little too excited about sticking a needle in my ass 😉



  1. Hey, did they make you do the clomid challenge? Just wondering if everyone does that.

    My HSG was not a big deal either. I cramped only when the tubes were almost all full of dye. Only problem was that there were 50million people in there! Well, about 5, but thats about 3 too many for my taste. 😛

  3. No I didn’t have to do the clomid challenge because of my age. My clinic only requires it (and insurance will only cover it) if you are over 35, I think.

  5. Found you through L&F (makes sense). Hehe. Glad everything came out good. Mine was not a big deal either. You hear so many stories so you expect the worst and hope for the best. We are dealing with a MF issue right now too so I’ll be checking in!
