Everyone has different responses to it. I had some cramping and it did hurt, but it was nothing I couldn't get through. The more severe cramping is short lived. I did have some period-like cramping the rest of the day and the next day. Make sure to rest the rest of the day if you do have some cramping. There are some women who experience no pain, you might be one of those.

I did not have any pain during the procedure, some period like cramping after but not bad at all. Don't stress too much and try to relax.

You will be okay! Do try to stay calm....I think if you are really tense it could make things worse.

I have had two HSG.....the first one was totally clear and I pretty much felt nothing. The second one both tubes had blockages and the doctors had me coughing and moving around trying to get the dye through. Even with the blockages and trying to force the dye through, I barely felt anything. Maybe a little discomfort and pressure, but that was it. I drove myself to and from the hospital each time, and was fine.

My doctor told me to take two advils ahead of time, so I had done that and it may have helped, but really, it wasn't bad at all.

Good luck!

Like people have said, everyone is different. Hope that you were able to find your meds and that the HSG wasn't as bad as you had thought. KUP.

Also remember that on youtube you are going to see all the bad experiences. If someone had a good experience, then why would they post it all over youtube? Good luck today. Let us know how it goes.

I really didnt think it was THAT bad - cramping, yes but nothing that was intolerable... glad it went well and you had good results!
