Anyone had a HSG scan? (Hysterosalpingography)

I’m being sent for a HSG and I’m getting really worried about the procedure if anyone could give me their experiences x

I’ve literally just had this done. And I found it completely painless, so I’d encourage people not to feel worried about it. Best thing is to relax as much as possible. I didn’t take any painkillers before either x

They prescribed me both something to take before, and antibiotics to take after. I actually forgot to take the thing before, so took it after instead?! Then have been taking the antibiotics. But the person who actually did the procedure said they don’t always see antibiotics prescribed, so it doesn’t sound like it’s essential. I just took them as I’d been prescribed them. Hope that’s helpful?!

Did your doctor prescribe you antibiotics for afterwards, as a just in case? My doctor is prescribing me pain killer & antibiotics, but I’m debating whether to get them or not

It hurts but its only for a few seconds. Nothing mindblowing.

I had mine 2 months ago. Very painful. Had 1 tube blocked. Doctor is unsure is other is blocked and wanted to complete scan again. I was "heck no".

ive had two. One before and one after an ectopic pregnancy. If you have a blocked tube, it hurts more. From 1 to 10, its 7 but for like 3 seconds only, then its just uncomfortable.

I had one done this past fall. Although I didn’t have any blockage, the pain was awful! The good news is that the pain only lasted a few seconds.
