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.

hi jenn.. i cant have that dye test done for another 3 months! because ive just had some abnormal cells removed. im well upset i have to wate that long again! oh well.. how are you getting on?

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!

magicbst.. thanks for your news it does help to know it still can happen with one tube.. all the best in your pregnancy...

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?
