What a morning. In preparation for my second ICSI cycle, I have been doing lots of investigative fertility tests including bloods, scan and an HSG (hysterosalpingogram).
I have never been in so much pain. They found the tubes quickly, so it only lasted a few minutes, but afterwards I couldn’t move.
I started vomiting over the nurse, convulsing and crying from a type of pain I didn’t think was possible. The doctor took me to the emergency ward and gave me morphine. He said my left tube has a blockage at the end, which is why it was painful but said no one has had this reaction before.
He said the next step is a laparoscopy in two weeks.
This really is a journey isn’t it? A brutal, painful road. After this agony is over, I am going to start campaigning for proper reproductive education in schools. No one should go through this. I went to four doctors about painful periods in my 20s and they all said it was hormones. Now, at 36, I finally find out otherwise because I pushed a private clinic to test me. It goes to show: we know our bodies best.
Hope everyone is doing better than me ❤️😘
