I'm not TTC currently but after 7 months with no luck while TTC my 2nd child, my Dr. mentioned the word that cured MY issue and I concieved my daughter the night that I did this one special word......HYSTEROSALPINGOGRAM.
and if any of you ladies think this is a scary word, it's not.
The best way to describe this procedure is to tell you that the doctor will advise you to abstain from sex from the the day of your period begins until your period ends and abstain until after your hsg is completed. call the doctor after your period ends. The doctor will schedule your hcg during your fertile period. they dosctor call you in for the procedure will open your cervix (a little crampy but it's worth it for anyone who's been through the anguish of 7 months or more of negative preganancy tests and timing sex)then the doctor will use a liquid sucrose (sugar water-like nonharmful liquid) to inject into your fallopian tubes and check them out xray-style to ensure there are no blackages and possibly (like me) clear them.
I remember the nurses chuckling and telling me to go home and spend some "quality time" my my fiance. I did
Well 40 weeks to that night I gave birth to my daughter.
Anyone TTc and having issues should ask your doctor if this easy little procedure would help you. It helped me. to anyone with concerns about pain during this procedure please dont be worried, contractions during childbirth are alot worse and for me it was just like period crampiness.
It may not be for everyone but this may help someone else and i hope it does. I only have one existing fallopian tube and the one existing was blocked.
Here's more information about the HSG with the correct medical terms. It doesnt hurt to ask your OB if this may help you so don't be emabrrassed to ask them.
Just wanted to share
