I have to have the dye test done now. The doctor told me to schedule it a week after my period. I am scared, but I am going to fo it. i am terrible with pain, so do you think if I pay extra that my doctor with have me IV sedated or something? I can not take pain at all. Can someone give me advice? How long does this take?

Re: Hsg

I have had to dye test done. It is uncomfortable during but it is after that hurt for me. It is like cramps. What I found out out taht is best to do is take Mortrin or such about an hour before. I was not told this before. The nurse asked my if I had taken anything for the pain and that is when I was told about that.
You can talk to your doctor about this but I doubt he will do that.

Re: Hsg

I had the hsg test in Nov and like you i dont handle pain well. My dr gave me a mild valium (only b/c i got a student) but it really didnt have any pain. I felt a little cramp when the opened the uterous but after that nothing. It was really more uncomfortable than anything. I had some cramping later that day but that was it. Try taking some extra strength tylenol about 30 min before. Good luck!!

Re: Hsg

So I guess that there is no reason to be IV sedated. I am going to do the test regardless, I don't care how bad it hurts. I just can't take pain at all, and if it hurts really bad, they will not be able to do it.

Re: Hsg

Hi, Like the rest said you will have alittle cramping. But that should be all!Hey besides when I had it done my Doctor told me your chances of becoming pregnant with in the first month was very good! And for me I did get prgnant the first month with my first child. But for the second time I had it done it still took me three years, but I also had other complications. Good Luck I would say it was very much worth it! Hey I did it twice so couldn't have been bad! Again Good Luck
