First cycle after HSG

Postby StephF » Mon Apr 06, 2015 7:28 pm

Has anyone else had an HSG done and became pregnant recently? I see other threads about this that seem to be a bit old, and wanted to get some feed back from others. I just had my hsg done 3 days ago on cd 7. So now I'm cd 10 and I've just started to bd for this cycle. I will start OPK probably on Wednesday this week, but I'm driving myself crazy wondering if I could get a bfp after 15 months. Any kind words, advice, or personal stories would be greatly appreciated to keep me distracted

Hey Steph F,
I'm really new to this site but am loving the posts and support everyone gives! I just had my HSG today and am wondering the same thing as you. They said your chances of getting pregnant after HSG are higher so here's to hoping! Are you in the two week wait now? Good luck to you!

I had a saline ultrasound - SHG (not the x-ray one). I think it can help to flush out your tubes and uterus but if you have serious adhesions or other problems that require a surgery i don't think it will help much. It really depends on what issues the person has. My tubes and uterus were fine and no blockages, but my ovaries are a mess. So in my case "flushing" everything didn't help....the test was done over half a year ago. But who knows it might help in both of your cases, good luck!

I was at my REs office today for an HSG and a girl came in to get blood work. I overheard her telling the nurse that she was in their office in March for her HSG and got pregnant 3 weeks later! She was there getting a beta done :D After she left the nurse told another nurse that she was the 2nd or 3rd patient in there office in the last few months who got pregnant after having one done. My RE told us that also at our consultation.

These are such hopeful responses! I was put on Clomid this month of days 3-7 of my cycle then they did the HSG last Friday. Everything looked great during the HSG and it didn't even hurt, but I heard from some it was awful. I got my smiley face for ovulation on Wednesday (4/22) and they did an internal ultrasound and blood work Thursday. I gave four strong folicles instead of one due to Clomid so hopefully that means four chances this month! Now I just started the dreaded two week wait. I go back next Thursday for another internal ultrasound and blood work, I think they check progesterone levels specially. Does anyone know if they'd be able to tell if you're pregnant from those tests with it only being a week after ovulation? Ahh the wait is so hard!

Well the embryo usually needs like 7-10 days to implant so I don't think they can tell in just one week!

Hey ladies! Hope everyone is doing well in the tww! Mine is just about over as I'm 11dpo right now. Not really sure of anything as everything has been the same as it always has! If I do not get BFP this month I will be doing clomid at the start of my next cycle to see if it helps at all! Stay positive and fx!
