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 just had mine today—was no big deal! I was so anxious before and even took a bit of Valium. It was nothing compared to IUD insertion/removal. Just be honest with your doc about your fears and if you need to take a break during the procedure, they’re happy to oblige.

Hi! I had it done a few years back and I only had mild cramping. I got pregnant the next month so I found it worth it. I believe the doctor prescribed me a pain pill before I went. Good luck!

Hi there, I had the HSG done in August 2019 and it was SO PAINFUL, as my tubes were partially blocked. I did one last month again and it wasn’t painful as all as my tubes were 100% clear :-)

I had my HSG today and it wasn't as bad as I thought. It felt like period cramps and some pressure for 2 minutes. Its really quick! I took 2 ibuprofen and rescue drops to calm down. Just take deep breaths! Its over really really fast

The whole procedure yeah about 10 mins. But the part that hurt a little, litterally seconds.

I was told over and over again that it wouldn’t hurt. Even the nurse said it wouldn’t hurt. It hurt so fucking bad I almost cried and kicked the nurse in the head. It’s a quick procedure, but it definitely CAN be painful. My tubes were completely open and it hurt really bad but everyone’s experiences are different. Try and remember it’s worth the pain to find out the results!
