Hi, sweetie! I had this test a few months ago, and this is what happened to me: The insert a small tube through your cervis and inject dye through it , while watching on an x-ray machine. If the dye runs smoothly through your tubes, all is good. If it is stopped at any point, that means there is a blockage.
As far as how it feels, it is different for everyone. Some say it wasn't so bad, while others really hurt from it. When I had mine done, it wasn't that bad. I did cramp up while the first inject the dye, but it onlyREALLY hurt for a few seconds, and then the cramping gets less and less. It ca be messy when you're finished, because all the dye leaks out , so you probably want to bring a pad with you just in case. As soon as I was finished with the procedure, my husband drove me home, I took a short nap, and then I was perfectly fine again! I hope I helped! Good luck!!! *baby dust* Helayna

Hi Gigi, I've had two HSGs, and my experience was like Helayna's. I only had some cramping, and mine was more towards the end of the dye injection than when they first started. I was terrified before the first HSG and I didn't think it was any big deal afterwards. Also, in case you didn't know, it can increase your chance of getting pregnant for 3 months after the test. I got pregnant in the first couple of months after each HSG. Unfortunately the 1st time I M/C. The only reason I had the second HSG is to try to re-create the conditions of the 1st time I got pregnant (not for any diagnostic reason), because I just couldn't seem to get pregnant. It worked and I am now 14 weeks into what appears to be a healthy pregnancy. Good luck!!
