BUT I wanted to share my HSG story with you all! It's pretty funny actually:
It was pretty bad! But not as bad as some of the experiences I've heard about. They had to switch speculums about 3 times and they had to dilate my cervix to jam the catheter up there. The most uncomfortable part was that they kept having to swab me out because the dye didn't want to go up!
But the KICKER:
I was lying there, showing my goodies to a room full of people with bright lights and magnifying glasses,,,,,THE POWER CUTS OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!! So then I have to lay there with a speculum and a catheter up me for 20 minutes until they reboot the computer! There was even a computer tech guy running around in there. While this is happening the nurse, who is very sweet and meant well, said "If it's any consulation, you can always adopt"! People are starting to count me out already, I think. The woman who took my blood told me that kids aren't all they're cracked up to be and I should just be a good aunt.
When they finally shot the dye up there, THEN it really hurt, but only for a couple of seconds. The dr could only find one tube because the other one is so blocked. He said that my cervix is too tight and my uterus is extremely small, tilted, and angled up to the left, which means if I do get pg I'm going to have to be very careful.
Anyway, that doesn't explain the huge anomaly that MY Dr says I have, it just confuses me more. AND I have to wait two weeks to see my Dr because he's all booked up (even though I TOLD the receptionist that I needed my test results).
So I won't know anything until May 1st! I'll lurk until then and report back. I miss you all, but I'm cheering you on from the sidelines.
