The Blue Dye Test

So I was all nervous for nothing. I went in this morning for my Hysterosalpingogram hearing all different things about it from just about everyone. Someone told me it took about 2 hours and only hurt for a minute, and someone else told me it hurt really badly the whole time.. Well, it took about 5 minutes from start to finish and barely hurt at all. It's a little awkward having the doctor shove a speculum into you and open up your cervix but that takes about 15 seconds and then its over. The most pain came about an hour after it was over when I was having mild cramps, but it was barely noticeable.

So right after the test is over (and I mean right after.. The girl was still moving the x-ray away from me and the doctor was walking over to me) he gives me my results so... drum roll please.... Everything was just fine! They found nothing!! It's a bitter sweet victory in the fertility journey. Finding something would be bad because then there'd be a problem, but at least we could fix it. Now that theres nothing wrong we now have to go in for ANOTHER consultation and decided "where we're gonna go from here" as the doctor put it. I'm happy that they found nothing because that means nothings wrong with me and I guess I now still have a better chance of getting pregnant right? But now where do we go from here? What does that even mean? I don't want to go in for another consult and pay this doctor more money so he can tell me that I'm fine, theres nothing wrong and that's it. This is so frustrating.

Anyway our next appointment is June 22nd at 3:30 where we can discuss "where to go." Whatever the heck that means. As for now, time to keep on praying. And maybe a nap after this eventful day :) Talk to you all soon.

Isn't it funny how one person's experience can be so different from another? Glad you got that one behind you!
