    Default Question about the hsg test???

    hey soulcyster......just been reading up on afew things...and just wanted to know how a HSG would be scheduled if you have irregular periods.......i have a period every month but the length varies alot for 22 days to 42 days......with pcos patients would they do the hsg test during period as i am aware they state that it must be done after period but before ovulation...

    any idea???

    Nope, they'll just schedule it in your first week. So if first day of full flow is CD1, you'll probably want to schedule between CD5 and CD8. I think I had mine done on CD6 or so. The length of the cycle doesn't matter so much as just pushing it out further in terms of calendar days.

    Above poster is right. I had mine on CD 5...and even if AF is provera induced that's fine too

    ok so basically i would schedule my hsg test just as soon as my AF begins at a date which is when my AF should end...if that makes sense.....because my AF is becominge quite unpredicatable for me to pinpoint a date to have the test done..

    I'd call first day of af and ask what cycle day they want you.....they wanted me to have af when I went in

    Yep - my doctor always has me call on CD1-2 to get the plan for the month ahead. Once you get the first day of full flow, give them a call.

    ok thats much more realistic for me now...i have my first appointment with the specialist in may after many trips to my GP.been taking the metformin for 8 months now,apart from taking my background info, history and other personal details do you think she might give me some kind of treatment straight away as i have known i have pcos for 10 years since i was 16. or can nothing go forward until i have hsg.iv heard of women trying 3 months of clomid before thier hsg....

    and also thanks for ur responses they always help..

    I did 4 cycles before the hsg but every doc had their own rules....in my opinion I think its a good idea to make sure things aren't blocked before you do too much treatment

    ^^WSS. Some doctors will do it, some don't. My doctor offered it if we wanted to try it, but I opted to investigate everything first. The way I looked at it, I had only a small chance of having blocked tubes (it's not uncommon, but it's not common either) and I could have just straight tried the clomid, and I may have gotten pregnant. But I didn't want to spend several cycles without knowing for sure the tubes were open, because if I had found after three months of clomid that I had blockages it would have been three wasted months - months I could have spent working on an alternate plan. Turns out, for me, it was smart - I didn't have blocked tubes but I had a uterine septum.

    It's a personal choice, whether to do it before you start or after, but I know I personally would have kicked myself to have found out later that I had something that needed attention.
