    What state are you in??

    The prep for my HSG took the longest, setting up the machine etc. but the actual procedure took about the same time as a Pap smear, maybe a fraction longer.

    I was told to take nurofen and buscopan before hand. He told me when to expect to feel cramping and I didnt feel a thing! I had no blockages though. I've read it can be painful if you do have blockages.

    I have been googling it and OMG the stories I have read are scary! Many describe it as the most painful thing they have ever experienced
    But I want it done so I guess I am going to have to grin and bear it!

    How horrible, you poor thing. That would be my luck too! Who are you with for phi?
    Do you know if they can tell you prior if they deem it as pre-existing so you don't end up with a huge bill?
    Thanks

    I was with AMH but changed to GMF Health after that incident. GMF have been fabulous.

    I left things until the last minute and the review was happening when my operation was scheduled. I could have postponed it (the op) to wait for their decision but went ahead knowing there was a chance i'd be OOP. My gp and FS couldn't believe they said it was pre existing. I think if you're within the first 12 months of a policy most funds will ask you to show its not a preexisting condition. (Usually medical forms that your referring gp and specialist will fill out.)

    Thanks Bella.
    Went to GP today but she said she can't order a HSG/hycosy for me and I have to ask the fs. To get an appt with him takes WEEKS and WEEKS and I wanted it done asap

    When I had it done I found it extremely painful so I'd recommend some pain relief beforehand. But others I know didn't find it too bad. It does help increase your fertility actually having the procedure in a lot of cases . There was no pain afterwards and it was quick.
