HSG...painful anyone else??? - Page 2
HSG Anyone out there have bleeding afterwards?Just had an HSG done Friday. (Had the Essure procedure done 3 months ago and had the HSG to confirm blockage, so I no longer need to take birth controll! No issues aftewards Friday or Saturday. However, this morning I saw some spotting marks and then started bleeding when I went to the bathroom. I have been bleeding ever since:. It almost looks like a dark dried color like its stained from the dye or something. I'm getting a bit concerned. I'll see how the day progresses to see if it stops. I've read that others have a had a white discharge like substance but have not really experienced that yet (everything is red so I wouldn't notice anyway). I have back cramps and a little nausea. My Dr. never said anything about this.
I stopped taking the pill 3 days ago and wonder if that is making me have my period a week earlier? I don't know what's going on...I' feel wiped out as well. Basically feel like I'm having some reeved up PMS cramping.
I'm low risk for infection etc... but don't like the looks of these sysmptoms..makes me think I have an infection festering...will call the doc in the AM. Has anyone else experienced this?
I'm getting one done next week, and after reading your posts, I'm now scared!!! The little leaflet they gave you really makes it seem like it's no big deal!! (well, I did shudder at the catheder part, but my DP convinced me it was really really smal...now that I think about it, how does HE know?!!?)
Anyone had a good experience??
We are leaving for a 3 day mountain bike trip the night of the procedure (I'm having it done at 1 pm). Now I'm thinking my timing isn't so great!!!
I think that some of us were surprised that it hurt, after the literature makes it sound like no big deal. You may be fine - seems that some people are okay, and some people have it hurt.
Good luck. While it hurt like heck when it happened, it stopped hurting fairly quickly and I was okay.
It's done!Well I had the HSG this afternoon and it does hurt (more like very bad cramping, really) but it was tolerable. I think the dr performing makes a difference. My dr. told me that this shouldn't hurt, so to say something if it did and he'd stop. When he inflated the little balloon (or whatever it is!) I squirmed a bit (it was very uncomfortable, but I felt like I had to just suck it up!) , and he said to his assistant "Ok, she's not fine, I'll deflate it a little" and I felt the difference!
I'm sure this is an oversimplification of things, but an attentive dr does make a world of difference!!!
Oh my stars--this was so painful for me. It hurt as soon as they put in the catheter. The pain went all the way up to my collarbones. They made me rub the dye around and tilt on my side. I knew it wouldn't take long, so that was the only thing that got me through it. I was shocked. I normally have a high pain tolerance, so I wasn't expecting to be in pain at all.
