I have to go for an HSG test tomorrow and I made the mistake of freaking myself out by looking at other people's stories. Some say it was the most painful thing ever, and some say that it didn't hurt at all.
To make matters worse, my doctor had spoken to me about a saline infused sonogram, but the approval was for the HSG. I called her office twice to ask if there was an error on the coding, and the answer I got was "that's the code they asked us to use." I'm very worried about dealing with a painful test, then finding out it wasn't what the doctor wanted and having to go do another painful test. How many ways can they poke and prod inside there?
Further complicating matters, when I called to schedule it, I was told that it had to be done during a certain time in my cycle. so I had to call back on the first day of my period to get an accurate count. When I said I never know when or if the bleeding will stop, I was told that bleeding is fine. Then when my period started and I called back to schedule it, I was told they can't do it at all if I'm bleeding.
Honestly, this is as emotionally exhausting as it is physically exhausting!
So, I'm trying to relax, tell myself that there's nothing to worry about and by this time tomorrow, it'll be done and over.
