HSG caused me so much pain!

So i had a hysterosalpingogram on 5th November the procedure itself was uncomfy but i got through it.

When i got home i was in so much pain in my stomach , back , shoulders the stomach pain is the same as the endometriosis (ive had endometriosis since i was 14 diagnosed in 2011 im now 22)

I went to the doctors but the pain killers they keep giving me aint working Codydramol, Naproxen, Tramadol any of those Co codamol. Do you know anything else i could try thats not medication?.

Hi there. I know exactly how you feel! I had the same procedure in October and it was a blooming awful procedure! The pain during the procedure was excrutiating and lasted the rest of the day and most of the next too before it started to ease. I did the usual of paracetamol and hot water bottles crouched up on sofa.

Did you ask after the procedure what they saw? If so I hope it was good news. well done to you for getting thru it too! x
