Preparing For HSG Exam

Monday, June 6, 2011
Do you have a HSG exam coming up soon ?  Well Here are a few things I was told to do before my exam tomorrow. 

Preparing For HSG Exam 

1) Doxycycline - Doxycycline is a tetracycline antibiotic. It fights bacteria in the body. Some women may not need to take this medication before the exam, however I was told by my doctor to take this medication the day before the exam. For my prescription I'm suppose to take 1 capsule twice a day for 7 days.

2) Eat a light breakfast before the exam. I was informed since my exam is around 12pm I should have something light like a sandwich around 10am. The reason for this is so that your stomach is not Empty but not Full either.

3) Bring some type of pain medication and a pad. From what I was told, there may be some discomfort during the exam so having pain medication like Tylenol or Advil would be great. The pad will be needed because there might be some light bleeding after the exam.

Alright that's all the tips needed to help prepare you for your HSG exam. My exam is tomorrow and hopefully things go well and not too much pain will be involved. Wish Me Luck - Smile
