: : : BOY DID IT HURT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
: : : oh i'm so sore it's not even funny...
: : : but the good thing is i wasn't blocked!
: : : So what now is the question?
: : : The test wasn't as bad as i thought it would be but it did hurt and it didn't feel like any kind of period pain i ever had! it was more like getting HIT In the ear drum something more like that...but a sharp pain..
: : : The dye didn't hurt at all it was that TUBE that put in me...Omg that's what got me yeah i no i'm a chicken...but I DONE it took everything i had lol
: : : thanks everyone for your help you guys are great..OH the cost is around 250.00 not that bad don't guess..
: : : Thanks again
: : : Lasinda
: : I did the dye test too and it was horrible for me! I'm not a wimp either but I was really hoping that it would just be cramps or something and then I would take an advil and go home but it was exactly that way for me. I was sooooo sick and had nobody to drive me home! I was throwing up and had stuff coming out of both ends! lol I almost fainted about 6 or 7 times too. I went in brave and came out crying! lol I dont want to scare anyone but just wanted to share my experience. I found out that one side is blocked and he wants to do it again but I said no.We can work with one tube! :o)

: I also had the dye test done. OUCH!! I went scared to death and came out in real pain, the cramping only lasted about 20 minutes but it was NOTHING like menstral cramps. Good luck to everyone.

I had the dye test a little over a year ago. It hurt like nothing I've ever had before!! I had no idea it was going to be that bad. The nurse gave me a crash course in breathing through the pain. It did help take my mind off it a little. Afterward, when I was getting dressed, I felt faint. I had to sit down, then I felt pukey!
What fun!

It turns out both my tubes are blocked. In about a year I'm going to try a tubal reconstruction surgery. I hope it works.

If it doesn't, it won't be the end of the world, because last fall my husband and I adopted a beautiful healthy baby girl. She's the best thing in the world!

Good luck to everyone out there in infertility land!!
