Has anyone got some advice for me please

Hello, has anyone got some advice they could give me please? I have a three year old a a two year old and me and my husband have been trying to concieve our third child for nearly two years, its a bit worrying as i am only 20 years old. I have been to my gp and he refered me to a gynocologist (sorry if i have spelt it wrong!) at my local hosptal, they have done the usual blood tests to see if im ovulating and they tested my husbands sperm, and all is ok i am due to go for a scan next month can anyone advise me on how the scan is done as i am a bit scared!!!
Any advice or tips on trying to concieve would be much appreciated.
Love
Emily

Hiya hun! :smile:

I have a bit of info for you re- the 'scan' -
I am assuming this is what you're having - Hystersalpingogram (HSG)??

This is an X-ray study that’s conducted between the end of your period and ovulation(somewhere around day nine to 12 of your cycle). It’s a little like undergoing a PAP test — a speculum is inserted into the vagina, and a tiny tube is threaded into the cervix. Then, a special dye is slowly injected into the tube, and the fluid is tracked with a sort of moving X-ray(fluoroscopy). If there are no obstructions, the dye will travel through the uterus, spilling out through the ends of the Fallopian tubes into the pelvis, where it will be absorbed by the body.(Since the procedure can cause period-like cramping, you may want to take a dose of Ibuprofen or acetaminophen about half an hour beforehand.) In addition to helping determine whether the coast is clear, so to speak, HSG can establish whether size and shape of the uterine cavity is normal, and hint at the presence of polyps or fibroids(benign tumours in the muscle of the uterus) that could interfere with the implantation of a fertilized egg.

So what are the advantages and disadvantages of HSG? Since it’s non-surgical and doesn’t require any anaesthesia, it’s very low risk.

Hope that helps.

Good luck

None that I know of chick.
Here's a site that explains it in more detail so you can get a kinda 'true' understanding about it -

Good luck, you truly have nothing to worry about

Hi Emma

Sorry to post here but you have set your account up so that we can't email you or PM you. I have deleted the thread you wrote this evening, which you posted in the 'general fertility' section, as it is a duplicate of this one and really wasn't in the right place in 'general'
