First, I had to take antibiotics the night before and the morning after. Also pain killers of up to 600 mg, separated into 3 doses.
I went in for my appointment at Kaiser, registered at the front desk and within 1 minute my name was called! I was expecting to wait at least 15 minutes.
Took off my clothings down there like you do at an Ob-gyn exam, no need to go into those details, you all know! Laid down on a bed with the x-ray machine over me. Then a little cold, metal was inserted down there. The Dr did the x-ray for me. When the machine was over my lower body the nurse inserted a tube with liquid/the dye.
It HURT! I felt like a pin cushion down there when the liquid passed inside The nurse had to insert some more dye since they wanted to get a clear picture. I screamed. I know I'm a cry-baby...
I'd to roll over to both side to take more pictures. The pain lasted very short, about a minute. Then I went to dress and there was of course discharge.
The whole process was less than 15 minutes. And the cramp/pain was short, I felt better within 30 minutes. Went home and took a NAP for an hour. I used it as an excuse for not cooking dinner last night
Here is something the nurse told me: do not BD while there is still discharge, but free to start when the discharge has been cleared. So I'm up and running in a couple of days
Alright, I am still alive and no more cramps.
hmmm, they inserted a metal down in your vajayjay??? now i'm SCARED
My insurance paid for it in full. I had United Healthcare which is probably the best insurance out there IMO.
We must have very different United Healthcare plans! Mine covers nothing fertility related plus my deductable is $3000 and after I meet that, I still have to pay 10% of everything. Probably the worst insurance I've ever had :(
