Hello,

I have my HSG a week on Thursday (March 3rd) and I'm already pooing my pants a bit  :'( .

I've been told to take some painkillers beforehand.

Some people have advised Paracetamol, others Ibuprofen.

Can anyone tell me which is more effective? (any advice/opinions would be great!)

Hi, I've had three HSGs in total, and always taken nurofen plus about half an hour before the procedure, then some paracetamol once I come out, along with a nice cup of tea and some cake.

Best of luck

LauraLLL:
Thanks, Helen.

If you don't mind me asking.... how did you find the HSGs?

I have to honest and say the first one wasn't pleasant and I found it quite painful, the second and third ones I didn't even know they were taking place, I couldn't even feel them.  I'm not sure why there was such a difference, I did have a child in-between but he was delivered by csection so can't explain it by saying child birth may have stretched cervix for example, only thing I can think is that HSG two and three were carried out by a different doctor to HSG one,  and at a different hospital so maybe some of it down to skill of the doctor and also the equipment they use.  Where abouts will you be having yours done?

LauraLLL:
I'm having mine at the New Royal in Edinburgh x
