Awe hugs tight!!The hsg is fast and not painful ,I mean you feel something but is not terrible,you can take something before hand to help you relax .
I think your doctor did the right thing by referring you to. RE,is hard to accept it but age is important while ttc and if possibly there are any issues you have time to fix and closer to a bfp!!
Think about it this way,you are now closer to getting pregnant than yesterday.
Good luck!

Thank you for replying! It's a lonely struggle especially when everybody around me (family, friends, etc) has either had no trouble at all or doesn't want children. I didn't even think I wanted them until I REALLY WANTED them haha. Oh, life.

I just read your comment below that says being worried about loneliness. You must be a courageous woman. I know that's so difficult to have such journey alone. When everyone else around is doing fine. And if the doctor has suggested you something that would be perfectly fine. I know you must be having tough times. But that's how it is. This journey is never been easy for any women. I have a soft corner for all the women struggling with infertility. And I guess being infertile myself would be the reason of that. I would pray that you could be able to get through all such conditions soon.
Hoping for a little smoother journey. May the tough times ends up soon with the good results of course.
I am sure you would soon find some help over this forum.

Hey, there you are just taking a lot of stress. You need to calm down. Since the doctor has mentioned that it is male infertility I think you should give your husband the support. He might not be okay with the news as well. As far as the HSG test is concerned honestly don't be worried about it will be real quick. You will not even feel it, it will be that quick. Other than that it is good that you have been referred to a fertility specialist. The more quickly the problem is solved the better it is. I know that you never thought that this will help but small obstacles are part of life. There are so many things that have happened to me which I never even imagined about. However, I didn't let these problems make me weak. I have switched my doctor and have decided to visit one with a high success rate. I am constantly struggling but not giving up. I hope everything goes well for you. Sending baby dust your way.

I won't even feel it? Haha I doubt that!
Anyway we went to the RE and he said Husband's sperm is actually okay, but since I have prior history of chlamydia (I think 3 months), to do the HSG to look at tubes. I am terrified and consumed with anxiety about this test. I know LOGICALLY it isn't that bad, but my mind isn't being logical right now. I feel like if my tubes are blocked, I don't want to know. I'm not ready for IVF yet, and also, if they're blocked I'm not sure how mentally I will handle that kind of news. Maybe we can just continue to try. It hasn't been THAT long.

I just had an SIS done, which is the same as the HSG, minus the dye-- it's just saline. It was uncomfortable, but not terrible, and really was pretty quick, all things considered. After it was done I had no lingering cramping or anything, just some discharge for the best few days.

My doctor was really good about asking how I was doing every minute or so and only injecting more saline if I told her I was ready/ok with it.

Although it might seem depressing to be referred to an RE, you are incredibly lucky to be seeing one so soon and lucky you have that option. It's taken me 18 months to see the right doctor and I worry constantly about how much it is going to cost me. This is the doctor that can get that baby in your arms! This is a GOOD thing! Also, there is a lot they can do that's minimally invasive, like putting you on clomid or letrozole to help strengthen your ovulation. So don't look at it like you're going straight to IVF or something-- you're just seeing the right doctor to help you unravel the mystery!

So i have finally been sent for my HSG & on the letter says ULTRASOUND aswell, i think its because 2years ago the lady found something,yet a week later another woman said she couldnt see what she had seen??? And now ive seen a specialist he think i may have a blocked right tube!, i cant stop thinking about it!, its driving me insane too, the test will be done so close to my fertile window..i.e: the day before ot on thr day. im gonna try still anyhow this month depending on thee outcome xxx
