    Default HyCoSy tests, does it hurt??

    Ladies, I'm hoping for some advice on my pending HyCoSy. I'm concerned about the pain cause the lady that took my booking suggested I take some pain relief before showing up, and nurofen won't be strong enough.

    Anyone have one of these done before? What's the process? I'm going in with no info and kind of scared lol

    I had this test at the RWH Melbourne and they do not use any seditives etc.

    It did hurt for me, like intense period pain and I cried alot. However the test DiDnT take long I took Panafen plus (ibuprofen plus codeine) and I wasn't in pain for very long after at all.

    I don't want to scare you though! Plenty of ladies I have spoken too did not have pain as much as I did. Some had none at all

    I was pt under general anaesthetic for mine. However after I was fine. I went back to work the next day. You will be a little tender but don't stress. I was also told not to take nurofen because it stops ur blood clotting.

    A GA for hycosy? Wish I had it done like that. I heard some clinics use a light sedative so you have no memory or pain from the procedure, similar to egg pick up.

    I don't remember my egg pick up but the nurse said I wouldn't shut up!

    GA??

    Ladies I know just had the procedure done in an ultrasound clinic with no anaesthetic involved. They do advise to have 2 nurofen before the procedure though.

    GA? Wow.

    Two nurofen beforehand were enough for it to be okay. Uncomfortable when the dye goes in, but not painful.

    I just had two panadol beforehand and went in my lunch break at an ultrasound clinic. Wasn't as painful as I had been told by others. Wear a panty liner afterwards as some of the dye can leak out.

    Hello - I had my hycosy with IVF Australia and I have to say it really wasn't that bad. I am needle phobic and terrified at even having a pap smear and so I took 10mg valium (30 mins before), 2 mersyndol day strength (30 mins before) & 2 naprogresic(1 hour before). This may seem a little over dramatic however with my irrational fear I didn't think I could go through with it without the medication.


    So, if you're like me and are an absolute nightmare when it comes to these things, you could follow my approach as honestly it wasn't that bad. The painful bit was when they inflated the balloon but it was only for about 30 secs. I asked them to stop for a minute or two to gain my composure and the rest was fine.


    My tubes weren't blocked so I can't comment on pain if tubes are blocked - but I suspect it wouldn't be that bad as it didn't hurt when they sprayed the liquid.


    Best of luck - my advice, just go and get it over with.
