Should i arrange someone to be able to drive me hope after i have the test. I hear it is very uncomfortable and some cramp badly after it.

I've had one, just recently as a matter of fact, and I drove myself. The painful cramping is during the actual procedure and doesn't last more than 30 seconds. A long 30 seconds, but still about that long. But it's probably different afterward for each person. I drove myself there and to work after.

So you should probably ask your physician what he/she recommends.

I was fine after I had mine. They gave me a pad and away I went. For it to be so sterile and cold, it really was no bigee.

Hi andy, I also had the test done. My hubby drove me, but I could have if I had to. I cramped a little after, but that was it. Good luck!

My husband drove me home, but I could have driven myself. Their was a woman getting her HSG did need a ride home, but I think it was more emotional than physical for her. She stressed about the pain an awful lot while we were waiting for the procedure.

I went by myself. I would take about 800 mg of ibuprofen about an hour before if you can. And take a pad. It could get kind of messy. You might bleed a little afterwards as well. Not bad though. And your chances of getting pg afterward go up for about three cycles, which is always a great thing to know! Good Luck! I hope it's all clear.
