HSG Procedure

Today I went to the hospital and had my HSG (Hysterosalpingogram) procedure done.  How do I feel?  First I began to cry.  Yes!!! I cried.  For some reason every time I go into a procedure I tend to cry.  Thank God for the nurse and my doctor; they were so understanding and sweet.  Continuing to the procedure… While I laid on the x-ray table they inserted a speculum, then they cleaned the area with a brown liquid (this prevents any infections). I have to admit I thought this was painful but at least in my opinion it did not hurt at all. 

After they put in the catheter they started blowing up the balloon at the end of it to hold it in place. When injecting the dye into my uterus (this part it’s a bit uncomfortable, but not to stress about) they did several x-rays.  After the procedure was completed, I began to dress (recommendations bring a pad with you because the dye will come out and at least to me they were providing a “pamper”). Once dressed, doctor told me he had to take a deeper look to the x-rays he did but from what he saw my right tube is blocked and my left tube is perfectly normal.  I have to admit I was overwhelmed thinking on what will happen next but my doctor looked at me and said “you know you only need one tube to get pregnant”.  He made me feel a lot better.  He also said that a lot of women get pregnant easier after having the HSG done, because the dye flushes everything out and leaves the tubes clear and ready for the egg to pass through, except on my right one. 

My upcoming appointment is this Friday the 4th.  We’ll see what plans they have for us. I have been saying April is our month, I feel it, and we are finally getting answers.  In the meantime I’m praying continuously as always and I’m not losing my faith this time.

A special thank you to my amazing husband for being there, supporting me and for loving me.  Te amo!!! My mother and father that through distance they've texted me today to check on results and how was I doing.  And my best friend Wilmary she's my soul sister.  She gave me so much strength today.  This lady had two miscarriages one of them she lost her right tub due to an ectopic pregnancy.  And now she has an amazing beautiful daughter that is my God child.  I have an amazing support, and I don't know what I would do without these people in my life.
