After The HSG

Boney had her HSG performed today...

For those not familiar with the term HSG or Hysterosalpingogram, it is a medical procedure, using an x-ray and a contrast dye that is injected into the uterus through the cervix to gauge if there are any blockages within the womans womb or fallopian tubes to prevent the egg from reaching it's correct destination.

All things considered, she said that it wasn't her worst ever experience of hospital procedures, nothing worse than a Smear Test (not that I know what one of THOSE feel like), even though the letter received from the hospital did make it seem like a fairly in depth and "threatening" procedure, Boney reported afterwards that the staff were all very kind and supportive. I asked if I'd be allowed in to be with Boney during the x-ray and they did say that I was able to go into the room, however Boney did decide in the end to go it alone.

There was some good news from all this though, the radiographer had a look at the films straight afterwards and reported that he couldn't see any structural anomalies within the fallopian tubes or the uterus that would prevent the egg from following it's correct course, which to us is a great relief, obviously. We just need now to find out the base reason for our not falling pregnant.

Here's to hoping...
