I had the test done in January, I too took about 400 mg of motrin. I felt no pain at all, and my tubes were clear. I believe you can eat and drink before the procedure? Although mine was done early and I can't remember if I ate anything? Double check with the nurses at your dr's. I wore a pad home, that they supplied, but I got most of the dye out by using the bathroom before I left. Just relax, it's a pretty easy procedure, but definitely take a pain reliever beforehand. Good luck :)
I had it done a little over a year ago. Like Jenny said, my dr recommened 800mg of Advil about 45 mins prior to the procedure. It does go by really quick and is set up much like a pap. The actual inserting of the dye only takes about 30 seconds. It causes some slight cramping. I had to wear a pad for the rest of the day because the dye leaked back out and I had some spotting. I had mild cramps the rest of the day, but nothing a little more advil wouldn't take care of. I drove myself to and from the hospital and went immediately back to work after the procedure.
I had the test done about a year or two ago. My doctor recommended that I take 800 mg ibprofen prior to the test, which I did. I had no cramps and no spotting afterwards. The procedure itself takes hardly any time - in fact it took longer for me to go thru the processing and such. From your perspective it isn’t too much different from a pap, except they will be shooting the dye in and watching it on an xray machine. I was able to watch and they explained exactly what was going on. I highly recommend taking ibprofen beforehand. My doctor recommended bringing someone with me to drive me home in case I was in pain. I didn’t need it.
Hi. I had the test done several years ago and I remember having minor cramps afterwards. I also had some light pink spotting after the test. I was told that I could take Tylenol before the test to help with the cramping and that's what I did. I hope you have a pleasant experience. Good luck!
