HSG after colposcopy?

I had borderline changes on my recent smear and have a colposcopy booked for next tuesday (my first). Unfortunately it's probably going to clash with my potential HSG (period due any day). I have a follow-up fertility consultation early March, where I was hoping we would be able to make a plan of action/get on the IVF waiting list. If I don't get the HSG done this cycle before the appointment, I'm worried everything is going to be delayed.

So my question is, does anyone know if I can get an HSG done within a few days of colposcopy? If not, I'm thinking of postponing the colp.

I know I should be asking the clinic, but I can barely get hold of a secretary, let alone talk to the doc, plus I don't want to be persuaded into postponing the HSG.

I've had both although several years apart. I would have the colposcopy after the HSG but not the HSG after the colposcopy. I don't think they'd been keen to do them so close together due to possible infection risk. Personal choice but I don't think I'd be keen to postpone the colposcopy either as it's a procedure that could potentially save your life (and future fertility) if you have abnormal cells (my colposcopy discovered cells that were pre cancerous and if I hadn't have had the treatment I had when I had it it was likely to further develop within a 6 month period)

Thanks for your reply katie, I think I might call the colposcopy department and see if I can pospone the colp by just a week or so, but if it would mean a long wait them I'll leav things as they are.
