Dye Test????

So I went to the OB on Monday and she said I have ovarian cysts and that I would have to have a u/s in two weeks, and after that I would have a dye test.

My previous ob told me that it hurts, and you have mild cramping. Has anyone else done this?

I had it done in order to have a tuba reversal, they needed to measure the lenght of the tubes left. It wasnt too bad.

The nurse told me since my tubes were blocked it would cause alot of pressure when the tubes filled because the dye ws trying to push through. It was heavy cramping but tolerable. I found that if I moved more to the side when it got alot of pressure it was not as bad.

She also said that if you have has children it isnt as bad because you have some weakness where they insert the cath. It shouldnt be too bad. I was able to walk out fine. There was mild cramping throughout the day but none the next. They said you coul take tylonol before to help ease the discomfort.

gOOD LUCK and if you have any questions I'd be glad to help if I can.

I'm wondering too, I will have one in about 2 months. I'm really nervous about it for a lot of reasons, any info or links would really be helpful.
