Nancy, what your doctor is telling you is not true. When you make an appt. for the dye test they give you antibiotics - you take a pill 2x a day the day before the test, the day of the test and the day after the test - this is to PREVENT infection. I'm with Mandy. Have the HSG test done - you're at more risk of having another eptopic than you are an infection. Good luck.

Nancy, I also wanted to say that not only should your doctor suggest checking the HCG levels - they should do an internal ultrasound as soon as they think they'd see a sac in the uterus. My doctor told me about 5 or 6 weeks preg. I should come in for an ultrasound.

I had an ectopic at 5 weeks. This was in March of 05. I had the dye test. It hurts like a period, but worth it. I am now 4 1/2 weeks pregnant. My doc said it helps because it clears your tube out. Good Luck!

Hi Mandy, sorry to hear that you have to wait another 3 months but it will be worth it. The test is so important. Well we are still trying - we failed to conceive the month of June so we will try again this month. I don't know how long it will take but I was sure it would happen right away - the doctor said it usually happens immediately because your tubes are all clear - between the surgery and the dye test. I hope it's just that my body is still a little off - I was a regular 28-29 day cycle - this past cycle was 31 days - so we shall see. I'm hoping it works this month because if it does then conception would be my birthday present. Did they biopsy the abnormal cells they removed? I went through that 15 years ago and then had a pap smear every 3 months for 1 year and I've never had another problem. Things are going to happen for you soon. Stay positive.

Hi Girls, I am going for the HSG test today...I am scared, because of all the things I have read. Has anyone done it with no antibiotics? My Doc didn't order any for me. Thanks

Sopia - Good luck with your test today. Every doctor is different about taking the antibiotic. Don't worry and let us know how the test went.

Hi Mandy, I hope all the bad cells are gone too and you can start ttc by the end of the year. Thanks for your wishes - I hope it happens this month - I'm trying to think too much about it - because I'm still scared to death of another eptopic. But fingers crossed we will be pregnant before we know it. Sopia, How did your test go?
