Has any one had a HSG test done?

I posted early about clomid, but after speaking with my doctors office today, he decided that he first wanted to the HSG test on me. This is to make sure that my fallopian tubes are not blocked. Has anyone had this done. Did it hurt. I also heard that it may be easier to get pregnant after this test.

  • I've never had this test done. Try looking on webmd.com.

  • I just had this done last week... Its alot like a pap and they stick a thing up inside of you with a balloon that releases dye... That can make you cramp. The test only last about 5 minutes, its not all that bad and you will have the results right then and there.

  • I thought it was more painful than I expected, but it didn't last too terribly long. I'd ask the doctor to prescribe or recommend something to take before the test to help with the cramping.
