Saline Sonogram Experiences?

So the RE wants to do a saline sonogram to see how my uterus is doing after the septum resection in March. Anyone had one of these before? Sounds like an HSG, and I gotta say, my HSG was extremely painful. Not looking forward to this! I will load up on the Advil beforehand.

I have had it done and it is nothing like the HSG. Not even an iota of pain. It is

I had one done last year in the Dr.'s office.

I did something like this - also in the doctor's office - not an HSG.

Thanks, Jeanne and Kristi. Looks like I'll be having this in late October (if I don't get a BFP this cycle -- wouldn't that be awesome?).

So -- I had my saline sonogram yesterday. It was no big deal AT ALL. Honestly, I didn't even feel when the RE put the catheter in. So, if you have to get one of these in the future, don't freak out! It's way different from an HSG (which was very painful for me, though I seem to be in the minority).

Oh -- the sonogram showed my uterus is looking A-OK. I'm scheduled to start IVF injectibles on 11/19. YIKES!
