Pregnancy rates in several studies have been reported to be slightly increased in the first months following a hysterosalpingogram. This may be due to the fact that the flushing of the tubes with the contrast could open a minor blockage or clean out some debris that may be a factor that is preventing the couple from conceiving. Some of these studies suggest that using oil based contrast provides a greater increase in pregnancy rates after a hysterosalpingogram than does the use of water based contrast.

Just found this....I have heard the same thing. Are you having an HSG done? I am going for my HSG April 10th.

Yes I had mine done on monday. I was told that my right tube is completely blocked so I might have to have a laparoscopy done to clear it. But maybe with the HSG i can conceive with my good tube....I have my fingers crossed i have been trying to conceive for a 16 months with no luck after a misscariage.

By the way make sure you take some good meds because the procedure can be painful...

Yeah I am a bit nervous for the procedure. But at the same time i'm excited that things are finaly being done. DH and I have been TTC for 2 years now w/ no luck. i'm only 26 I never would have thought it would be this hard. If this comes back clear I start IUI the following month. My doctor told me to take tylenol or Ibuprofen  before the HSG. But at least they found a reason that contributes to you infertility. Are you going to wait a few months to have the lap done? Maybe it will happen on it's own! Good luck!!!!

i had a hsg done a couple of weeks ago.... don't want to make you more nervous, but it's uncomfortable.  It's like a reallly bad cramp, kind of...my doc actually prescribed me a valium and 600mg motrin to take 45 minutes before the procedure. I was crampy the next day as well.  He also said that the fact that i felt some pain was good cause although he didn't see any blockage, it flushed everything out..... good luck!!

That's me!  Yes, it is possibly true.  What happened was that after trying 26 mos. and had an HSG one month later I finally got pregnant, unfortunately m/c at 9 weeks. The results indicated that my right tube was open and my left could be possible blocked.  Now, I'm pregnant again.

Hope this will be your luck!

My previous post to you I knew you were having one but couldnt rmemeber when.  At least now they know why you were having problems.  and yes it can increase fertility I read by upto 20% for upto 3 months after.  And yes oil based is supposedly better but I also read to request water based less issues???  They used a water based with mine.  When will you have the lap?
Pbedazzle-  I had HSG on Thur it wasnt bad.  see wishing's prefious post to me for more details..dont want to bore you withthem again.  I took 4 ibuprofin about 1 hour before :O)  good luck Sheila

I just had h.s.g done yesterday, I took 2 pain killer (Paz) only half hour before the procedure. I was so nervours but it was much eased by the nurse who hold my hand and talking about Xmas with me. it only lasted about 15-20mins, I did not feel much pain afterwards, then I took another pain killer 4 hours later, today, I slight feel tension between my hips but it is not notice at all, only because I know I had that done so searching for any pain... I guess. I do not know how is like without pain killer, you better take one. My womb can feel slight sore, only very slightly, no more than normal you feel discomfort. I am glad that I had it done, my both tube are fine, It is reassurance. they use sugar base the dye, I am not sure if it will increase my change to PG. The whole procedure sounds a little bit scary, once you are there, you just have to go through it, it is not very painful. I expecting having some bleeding or spotting afterwords, there almost none, only a little darkend the discharge once few hours after I had it done. I can walk fine and went home and even meet some friends afterwards. So it was no way near I was guess how bad it is.

I had my HSG done on August 18th, 2009 it was'nt as bad as I thought it would be been trying to concieve (conceive) for 3 years and was told that my right tube was partially blocked but the left was wide open, after the procedure was done I was alittle crampy with lite spotting for two days after, Dr. advised that this was completely normal and this was actually good it means that if there was any debris or tissue build up it might of opened up so I was happy to hear that due to Dr. said that the Right Tube did eventually spill open, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this procedure will help us to concieve (conceive). Good Luck to you all out there.

I had a HSG after 2+ yrs of trying to concieve (conceive).  We got pregnant my second cycle after the HSG so I believed it helped.  I had a small blockage in my left tube which the dr. pushed through so in the end both my tubes were cleared and everything looked good. Unfortunately, I miscarried at 6 1/2 wks but I'm determined to try again.  I'm hoping it won't take long.

I just had and HSG done today.. It was crampy, hurt for like a few seconds but i talked to the Tech through it so that was cool.. Right tube is blocked and i also have PCOS( taking glucophage) to start treatment for that.. After about 5+ hours i notices a lot of discomfort and bloating on the blocked side.. called the Dr office and the nurse said to take pain meds and it should be ok by tomorrow.. Dont want to scare anyone b/c its worth it if you really wanna conceive, but have your Dr prescribe pain meds before and after,, I was on my feet for a while after and i think that contributed to the pain im experiencing now.. Hopefully the Glucophage helps regulate my cycle and we get pregnant soon.. Been married 5yrs, I'm 32 yrs young so ready,, Lol!

God bless to you all!

I had my test done Oct.24,2012. My doctor forewarned me to take eough pain killers so that I really wouldn't feel any discomfort. So I took (2) 800mg of Motrin, and with that said I didnt feel a thing!!!!!. While performing the HSG. My doctor said I had a beautiful Uterus, (lol) and that everything looked great!  He also mentioned that There was a higher chance of conception afterward. I tried the following cycle & hadnt concieved, kerp in mintd my husband & I have been TTC for 3yrs. ( fertility clinic test hubby & I in details) n told we had " unexplained infertilty" but after the HSG trst and ( actively using OPK's & BBT charting) WE CONCIEVE (conceive) ON THE 2 ND CYCLE!  After my HSG test!  Got my BFP on Dec.11,2012. Thank god! I took 9 test bc i couldnt believe it. So good luck to you ladies. Baby dust to you all!

I had an HSG done on January 28 2012 at 12 dpo, and was found to have no blockages.  That night, I had a positive OPK test, so my husband and I had sex for 4 days in a row.  11 days later, I got my BFP at 9 dpo :-)
