Failed attempt


At KKH, waiting to enter the XRay room. Yes, I’m going for my HSG.

Wish me luck.


A friend of mine warned me of¬†the after effect, another friend told me,” nothing lah!”

Sounded like it affects each individual differently.

Oh well,probably because also everyone has a different threshold for pain.  To me it was painful and discomfort definitely, felt like a lot of pressure and bad cramping. As soon as the radiologist finished,I had a slight dizziness, cramping , and something like pressure tickling feeling  in your stomach. I was transfered to a trolley and was pushed away to the observation room, lying on the trolley for half an way for the pain to go away. It was nice of KKH staff for giving me hot milo & biscuits too.It does eased up. Nervous & hungry lah!LOL

The bill : $136

Ok, what is HSG actually.

A Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) is an x-ray test that looks at the inside of the uterus and fallopian tubes and the area around them. It often is done for women who are having a hard time becoming pregnant.

During a hysterosalpingogram, a dye (contrast material) is put through a thin tube that is put through the vagina and into the uterus. Because the uterus and the fallopian tubes are hooked together, the dye will flow into the fallopian tubes. Pictures are taken using a steady beam of X-ray as the dye passes through the uterus and fallopian tubes. The pictures can show problems such as an injury or abnormal structure of the uterus or fallopian tubes, or a blockage that would prevent an egg moving through a fallopian tube to the uterus. A blockage also could prevent sperm from moving into a fallopian tube and joining (fertilizing) an egg. A hysterosalpingogram also may find problems on the inside of the uterus that prevent a fertilized egg from attaching (implanting) to the uterine wall.


I’m on the road to more fertiliy testing & procedures so I know this is just part of the whole process to get pregnant.

Pray for me.
