hsg and /or laprascope experience?

Postby angelh77 » Thu Apr 30, 2015 2:36 pm

Greetings everyone! I'm 35, ttc for a year. I did 4 cycles with clomid and recently discontinued because it made me feel very crazy. I have been reading about infertility and asked my dr to do an hsg test. they had done some other hormone testing and ultrasound but not hsg. She asked if I wanted a laprascope and she could inject the dye at the same time? I wonder if anyone has had either of these and can let me know if it was helpful in diagnosis or treatment? I'm leaning towards just doing hsg for now. I have had ovarian cysts but 15 years ago.

Hello,im not sure what an laprascope is,are you referring to a laparoscopic surgery?I had both hsg and a laparoscopic surgery,the hsg will show if ur tubes are clear or not but it will not show if they function properly!The laparoscopic surgery is really easy they make 3holes,one in ur belly button and one on each side on ur ovary that,the surgery will show how ur ovary looks like and ur uterus and ur tubes and if ur tubes are blocked they can be unblocked trough the laparoscopic surgery!You said you are suffering from cysts,in my opinion if the surgery is covered by ur insurance go for it this way ur doc can perform ovarian drilling so ur ovaries and remove ur cysts!!

Hi angelh77! On Tuesday I had both of these procedures done - laparoscopy for exploratory reasons and an HSG at the same time. For me, it was very helpful in treatment. They found I had endometriosis and were able to burn away the trouble spots. I also had several adhesions that were blocking my tubes, and they could clear these away at the same time. The doctors have told me I have a higher chance of conceiving in the next 6 months than all my time previously. Do you have any unexplained, persistent abdominal pain? Have you ever been able to fall pregnant on your own? I had had moderate to extreme abdominal pain since January, which is why the exploratory lap was scheduled. If you don't have any pain and no additional problems you know about, laparoscopy is a big step to take. I've got the week off of work, have continued bleeding, and am still on pain meds. It is relatively simple - just three small incisions, but still the insides have been moved around, scraped, burned, and that does cause pain. If you are just worried about your tubes being open, I would suggest just the HSG. If there are additional problems, then maybe do both. If you are worried about cysts, those can be diagnosed through an ultrasound. The less invasive the better! Good luck and I hope you find the right treatment option for you.
Me: 28, mild PCOS, history of large cysts that rupture, stage 1 endometriosis resulting in severe abdominal pain, lap to remove endo and adhesions (4/28), HSG shows clear tubes.
Clomid 50mg (6/15) - no response
Clomid 100mg (8/15) - scan shows ONE follicle!!
DH: 34, perfect in every way
TTC since August 2014
First ever BFP October 22!! :bfp:

I think the surgery is diferent for everyone,i had some adhesions cleared and one of my tubes unblocked and ovarian driling,but i only sppoted for 3 days i mean really light spot and i was able to go home 4h after the surgery,my recovery only took like 2 days,i had no pains whats so ever,yes you might experience some discomfort!!Ibefore the surgery I had both an hsg and a hysteroscopy and they all showed I'm fine nothing wrong with me but the surgery showed the contrary!Im not saying go ahead and have the surgery I'm just trying to point out that is not horrible and is really helpful and for the next 6 months you are highly fertile!Good luck!

Thank you for your responses. I had cysts and scar tissue removed 15 years ago and have had minimal problems since because I was being treated with hormones. I am not sure if that can improve or go away after time? This is the first time I have been off birth control! 20 years! I waited to get married and pregnant and now am just worried something could be wrong. I am not having too much pain, except for my periods. I scheduled to just do the HSG and am going to see if that helps the next few months before jumping to laparascopic surgery. I am also trying Mayan Abdominal Massage, anyone heard of it? Supposed to help fertility. We will see.

I had minor ovulation pains the month of the lap,that is how I know I O,I also had ovarian drilling but I did O on my own before the surgery I think bcs of the drilling is a possibility you might O in ur own!!I don't remember being thirsty then usual!!If you are not making mature enough follies or u don't O on ur own Menopur,GonalF,Clomid all good drugs to help you,but I would recommend close monitoring and a trigger shot!good luck!

wow really? i didnt no the drilling can possibly bring on O' Good to no
and yes my RE wants to start this cycle with Menopur and Femara he also said trigger shot if my follicles grow like they are suppose to .
ans yes about the thirsty part of it.. OMG am always thirsty and for too week my boobs nipples were killing me
right now am in my office and i had to go in the bathroom for a nap lol so tired

I did femara before i respned to the meds geart my follicles were 18mm and 16mm and some small onces around 10mm but for me this was great improvement because i have never seen them this big before.
that cycle i got a BFN and my RE explained to me that the Adhensions that was blocking my tube could of played a part in me not getting pregnant at that time.
My RE is excited to start next cycle with me .

My HSG came back normal, if there was a blockage she said it was opened during the procedure. I did find it to be painful, at first uncomfortable and after a few minutes I felt a sharp pain. I actually screamed and was so embarrassed. I am going to wait on laparoscopic surgery for now, maybe in a few months. In the meantime, I am having Mayan Abdominal Massage, trying to eat healthier, using castor oil packs, and trying to stay positive!
