  • Never had one done, but my friend just did. One of her tubes was completely blocked and the other was partially blocked. Her OB is recommending surgery, but the surgery could possibly damage the tube that is completely blocked. She doesn't really know what she will decide to do. She really wants children, and was pregnant 2 years ago but MC'ed at 22 weeks.
    Hope everything works out for you! And good luck with the test! My friend said it is extremely painful, and she is still cramping from it.

  • I had an hsg after 2 years of TTC. It showed that my tubes were open. We weren't successful for years. We were actually shocked to finally get pregnant last March but I m/c at 12 1/2 weeks along. We began TTC, has the hsg test done (it showed one partially blocked tube) but I got pregnant that cycle. Sadly, I m/c again but what I am saying is that this test can actually help you to get pregnant (the radiologist said that for the next few months following an hsg test you can be especially fertile as long as there are not other issues preventing a pregnancy from happening). I was told to take 2 Tylenol before having the test done (I took 2 XS Tylenol as that is what I need when I have period cramping) and that is what it feels like for about a minute during the procedure. THe procedure is manageable but of course, everyone handles the cramping differently. Best of luck to you!

  • Oh! ANd, I was going to be put on Clomid after 3 months of TTC as well but we did get pregnant on our own and now that I have m/c, my OB doesn't want to see us again for further investigating until we have been TTC for at least a year so we wouldn't be able to see her until December. So, I took matters into my own hands and am presently seeing a Naturopathic Doctor. She has run a gammet of other tests which are showing normal :) But, she has put me on Omega 3, a good Prenatal vitamin with added Folic Acid (as most prenatals don't have enough), Chasteberry and Vit. D. I am also having a round of acupuncture to help increase the bloodflow to my uterus with the goal of having an egg implant and be able to maintain a pregnancy.
