The procedure itself wasn't at all bad, just a little uncomfortable but not painful. It wasn't much worse than having a pap smear, honestly. I'm having some spotting now but other than that I feel fine. I had some mild cramping when the radiologist inserted the balloon and pushed the dye through, but it was nothing compared with the cramps I get when I have my period.
Anyway, here are some of my images (with identifying information removed, of course!)
|Uterus and both fallopian tubes|
|View of right fallopian tube (with dye spilling out)|
|View of left fallopian tube (with dye spilling out)|
So this is what we know so far:
- My husband's semen analysis and blood-work came back awesome
- My HSG looked great
- My blood work for estrogen and thyroid are presumably OK (I haven't been able to get a copy of those yet, but the lab tech said that I would have been contacted if there was anything wrong)
- My glucose tolerance test results should be available in a couple of days, and I'll ger a call if there's a problem.
I can't wait until our little vacation. We need it so badly!
