Hi there,

I am new to all this and I just had my sonohysterogram done at Lifequest. I was told I would just have some minor cramping and possibly some spotting. The procedure was going well at first and I didn't even feel her place the catheter. Then she said she was going to check my tubes and holy crap the pain was intense!! I was just wondering if anyone else had this experience. I did have some bleeding afterwards and some pretty bad cramps off and on for the rest of the night. :unsure:

Sorry to hear you were in so much pain. I was in a lot of pain when I had mine done. They say if the tubes are not clear that it hurts more, but I was told my tubes were clear, just to find out later via lap that they were damaged and blocked. Did they tell you if your tubes are open?

I had the exact same experience - I had 2 of them and they were each equally painful with cramping afterwards - I think that the first time I went back to work and had to leave and go home. Unfortunately for some of us it just plain hurts. My tubes were actually clear - they told me that they spasmed and that's what caused the pain. You are not alone!

I found it very painful as well. As far as i know my tubes are clear as well. It was when the stuff was injected i felt the pain.I cramped for the rest of the day but was fine the day after. The pain will go away

Hi baby2be

Thanks for your reply. I haven't had the results yet, I just had the test done yesterday and they didn't say anything to me. She did the test so fast I think from the time I layed down till the time it was over and she left was like 3 min. Not exaggerating. I didn't feel any pain at all though until she checked my tubes- but I also think she injected the saline super fast. Hopefully my tubes aren't blocked; but I am not going through this for infertility reasons even if they were. Thanks so much for sharing your experience.

I had the exact same test done in December, I chose to do it because I didn't want to experience the pain of the HSG, but they advised me to take 2 advil one hour prior to the test. I didn't feel anything except the saline that they inserted sowly, but even that I just felt it going in, no pain. Maybe it was the advil that did the trick.

Hi ALEX-R,

I did take 2 advil plus and extra strength tylenol and I can't image the pain if I hadn't. I think my problem was that the saline wasn't inserted slowly, but all at once. I think if I blinked I would have missed the doctor even come in and then leave. Thanks for your response though.

I've had this procedure twice (first time not at LifeQuest). First time I had awful cramping and was even sick afterwards thowing up. My tubes were clear at this point. Last time, it was ok...wouldn't call it fun, but not as bad as the first time. Ironically, it was the last time that one of my tubes were blocked.

Sorry it was so painful for you. Hope you get good results.
In 2004, had 5 IUIs (BFN)
In July 2004, had IVF (BFP) and have a wonderful son born April 2005.
In 2007, had 2 FETs (BFN), followed by 1 IVF (BFN), followed by 1 FET (BFN)
In Nov 2007, switched clinics. Went through testing and found issues - infection, blocked tube and suspected endometriosis. Put on menopause meds for 3 months.
In May 2008, redid tests. Unfortuantely, little improvement was seen. Still have inflammation and/or scarring in lining.
In Sept 2008, going ahead with IVF as it's still our best option. Got a BFP Nov 18th!!! EDD July 21, 2009

Mine was very, very painful. They said that my tube (only have one) was clear - or that some of the fluid got through and thus it should be OK - but surgery later revealed that it was crushed in the middle.

Oh my goodness, I am so sorry you had to endure that! I am wondering now if I do have problems as I remember have serious pain in my abdomen usually on my left side, but sometimes both when I was young. I have been on the pill for the past 7 years, so I couldn't say what is normal for me now. I have just gone off the pill and I am dealing with horrid pain and nausea. Not sure if that is normal from coming off the pill or not.

My fertility doctor just recommended this. I'm a bit scared...but glad to hear that the advil that was recommended might help with the pain. I haven't been told whether there is an issue with my tubes specifically but my doctor said that sometimes it helps clear things out and patients end up getting pregnant shortly after.

Hi, i had a sonohysterogram in October 2012 and was really painful.  Tears were pouring out of the corners of my eyes while i was lying there.  I had to stay and lie down.  I had cramps for sometime after.  In December 2012 I had accupuncture twice and that was also really painful after.  Dec. 23 I got it done and had cramps that shifted from the left then one day it'd go to the right for a week and a half.  The acupuncturist has been doing this for 30 yrs and said it wasn't the acupuncture.  I'm seeing her again today, i recently ovulated and i have minor cramps.  I'm now researching how long cramps can last from a sonohystergram. It makes sense since they blow up your tubes and uterus too i think so it expands.

Just had my sonohystergram and I had to come on here to compare my experience with others. I think you should have the option of being sedated for that exam.  They sedate you for a colonoscopy and I think this exam is far more uncomfortable.

 

Anyway, I initially didn't think the exam was that bad until they started testing the fallopian tubes with the saline solution and whatever else they were doing. It didn't hurt exactly but it brought on the feeling of really bad PMS which others have described as cramping here but I don't think that does it justice.  Its like when you are feeling the height of your most painful cramp but it doesn't subside the cramp just stays constant.  I took 1 advil and 1 extra strength tylenol before the exam.  If I had to do it again I'd ask for valium or lorazepam.

 

The good news that they confirmed one tube was open but they couldn't confirm whether the other tube was open or not. A little frustrating but I'm glad its over.

Then i just did it again at Create on Oct 2nd and its now Oct 15th and im having what feels like really bad period cramps what scares me is my embryo transfer is this Thursday. Could u tell me your symptoms please how long did they last. Thank you

I have had at least 6 sonohystograms and one hysterosalpingogram.  My first sono was performed by an OB (not fertility doctor who does them regularly).  It was SOOOOO painful.  The doctor actually asked me if he wanted me to stop b/c he said I was turning pale.  I had major cramping and spasms.  I made him finish because I figured I'd gotten that far and at that point wanted a baby so badly I would have done anything to have one.  At the end of it, he said my tubes were clear... which, after all the pain, I couldn't believe.  I almost passed out when I sat up and had to sit down while trying to get dressed afterward b/c I was so dizzy and still in pain.  I took my time getting out of there and drove home (5 min drive) and felt nausious/ slept the rest of the day.  I had an appointment with my family doctor after that and he said that it wasn't necessarily a bad sign, that they inject the saline quickly and it causes a lot of pressure.  After that I had a hysterosalpingogram and many more sonos and they have all been pretty easy - nothing like that first one.  I think a lot depends on catheter placement and the force they use with the saline.  Did you take Advil before you went in?  I have a prescription for Naproxen for my period cramps so I always take one of those before getting a sono done - the change from Advil to Naproxen might have helped reduce the pain too.  I'm sorry you went through that!  

 

BabyCompletesMe - Like I said above, I had a lot of pain with my first sono.  I have had two embryo transfers and they are NOTHING compared to a sono!  You'll feel the catheter go through your cervix but nothing else.  I haven't had a problem with cramping for transfers but have horrible period cramps and that one horrible sono.  Good luck on Thursday!!!!  Try to laugh and joke a bit with the nurses/doctor while you're in there.  I have found that laughing helps to calm my nerves in those situations!

I think you misunderstood me. Well during my Sono with my OB it really hurt that was last Nov. I went on to have pains for 2 months afterwards but the cramps were only my 2nd half of my cycle. After 2 cycles the pain went away. Then Oct 2nd my Re did one it didn't hurt at all. he did it on Cd 3 on CD 10 cramps started bad cramps they feel like period cramps but deep down like really low maybe like a pinched nerve feeling. Its now Oct 16th and its still hurting. I'm not scared about the embryo transfer. ( my son was from my first FET) I'm worried the transfer wont work cause im still having cramps. My RE said it was alright to do the sono the same cycle as my FET cause he said its only saline it comes right out. My transfer is in 3 days. Now i started the Progesterone Oil 2 days ago since starting it the pains have got much lighter not as bad as they were before. I m also wondering the day of my Sono i also started Prednisone and 12 mg of Estrace Something is giving me cramps. I dont think its the med's cause i took those med's for my sons FET. MY RE did a u/s on CD 14 he said he saw no reason for the cramps on the u/s/ My lining is 8.9mm but no triple stripe. I m scared the cramps will affect the outcome of this transfer. I just wish i knew what was causing them. Is it possible when i do the Sonos. they are irritating something. They always come back normal. But i do have a Frozen pelvis lots of scarring around my tubes just not in my uterus. Tubes are open. Ive also had 2 C sections

Sorry - Yes, I did misunderstand.  That's annoying - you want to feel confident going into a transfer, not crampy and worried. Hopefully you're RE is correct that it is ok to do both in the same cycle.  It's good that he did an ultrasound and didn't find a reason.  Potentially stupid questions but were you given antibiotics with the sono?  Good luck!  I hope you're able to get lots of time to relax over the next few days/weeks.  When in doubt I always tell myself that the REs want their success rates high so they wouldn't go through with a cycle if they really thought there was something that would prevent it from working (Hopefully this is true!).

He didnt put me on antibiotics right away but ive now started Doxycycline. But I  finally found out why ive been having cramps since the saline sono. Since i have a frozen pelvis when they did the sono. it pushed the scarring into my sciatic nerve that's why i've had cramps all around my left hip and down my butt and leg.

Brutal!  That sounds very painful.  I hope it subsides soon.  Probably a smart move to start you on antibiotics too!
