Yesterday's HSG was worse than I expected, but mercifully fast.
First of all, they had to use a smaller speculum (really?) after trying a regular one, but after that was shoved up there, my cervix numbed, then the real fun began as the inflexible catheter was rammed in and the dye injected. It was extremely uncomfortable. Okay, it hurt. For about 2 minutes. Luckily, the dye went through my fallopian tubes with no trouble and dumped out the other side.
And then it was over and the offending catheter and speculum were removed and all was good with the world again.
I did take the Val.ium, which helped, as did the acupuncture treatment before then. Mr. Jem droves us home and took a nap. There was some bleeding after, and blue dye. Luckily it's all a blurry memory at this point and Dr. W called to tell me we were all good to go with my stims on Friday. Oh, joy!
Oh, and my baseline sonogram went well, too. I had that in the morning. All was quiet down there.
