I just got back from my HSG, and everything went really well. I was a little bit nervous at first. Not so much about what the results would say, but I guess more nervous about the actual testing process. Things started out when they had me change into a gown and robe. I then had to go back and wait in the normal waiting room for a few minutes. This was pretty awkward, considering that everyone else in the waiting room was wearing their normal clothing. The nurse told me that it would be a few minutes, and this lady turned to me and said "How long is a few minutes?". I guess it was pretty apparent that I was uncomfortable.

When they brought me back for the exam, I was a little disappointed to find out that the person performing the exam was a guy. Even though I was hoping to have a girl perform the exam, he was very professional and did a great job. The most uncomfortable part of the procedure was the speculum, and the entire test was over before I knew it. I was able to see the images from the test right away, and everything looked perfect. Both tubes are open and there were not any abnormalities that could be seen. I should get the final results from my doctor sometime next week, but as of right now, there is nothing to worry about. The tech also said that my chances of conceiving increase by about 20% for the next few months, which is GREAT!!! I can't wait to take advantage of those odds...hopefully that means I will get a BFP soon....wish me luck!!!
