Can somebody put my mind at rest following hycosy?

Hello, I'm new to the infertility board. I guess I'm finally admitting to it!

We've had our referral and various blood tests. Wednesday was my hycosy.

It hurt like stink, they couldn't get the catheter in so had to grab my cervix or something. To be honest, I didn't ask too many questions about it as a. I'm trying to remain a bit detached from it all (going through the motions, not building hopes up sad) and b. when somebody is waving what looks to be a giant pair of scissors around my lady bits, I'd rather not know!!

They warned that I was bleeding a little because of the cervix grabbing and gave me an antibiotic suppository to use. I didn't (I know, I know... But had my reasons).

I ached a bit on Wednesday and a bit of bleeding. Yesterday was all fine and dandy. But I woke up this morning to spotting again. No aches, pains or anything.

Am I broken? sad

(Hycosy results were positive, no blockages or anything).

No advice I'm afraid but the cervix grabbing / scissors sounds awful! I had a hysteroscopy (under sedation so blissfully unaware of what they had to do to my cervix - though I have been told before that it is 'hard to find' - ??!) and a bit of spotting the day of and the following couple of days. All was fine, no infection. Could you get some non-suppository antibiotics just in case? (I am puzzled by this fixation in fertility clinics with sticking medications up your bum). Good luck!

My cervix always bleeds/spots for several days anytime anyone messes around with it; a bit of spotting doesn't sound unusual to me. I'd only be worried if it was extreme, or went on for aaaaaaages.

Thank you both. It puts my mind at ease. I guess I'm going to have to get used to people having a good rummage up there!

Hi
After my Hycosy I had a couple of days of loads of brown discharge, it freaked me out quite a bit but then stopped. They do a little damage when in there as I think this is supposed to help with increased fertility after whilst it's all repairing itself. If it doesn't stop after a few days I'd call the dr.

I bled like mad for about a week after my nightmare hycosy! It took 4 attempts to get an image because the catheter kept slipping out and I reckon the doctor was pretty cack-handed. At the end of 45 minutes of pumping saline into my bits they didn't even get a good image and I had a hysteroscopy a few months later. Anyhoo, after a few days of spotting I had cramps and heavy bleeding, called the clinic who were not fussed and then took to my bed. There was nothing wrong, I was not broken (as my subsequent hysteroscopy showed), so do not fret, but take it easy if it hurts or gets worse.

OP I had one under GA in November and my spotting was pretty much on and off and the pain although not terrible lasted about a month particularly if I moved a certain way the pain was like a feeling of being kicked between the legs a weird sort of feeling . My first AF after it was also on and off as it seemed to have finished then started again. Must have been horrendous getting it done without being put under it must be a relief that everything's fine though .

Thank you smile I seem to have stopped now.

NotSpartacus it took them a few attempts to get the catheter in but thankfully they got a good clear image afterwards.

Finfers crossed all my tubes are nicely lubed and I can get that ever elusive blue line!
