How can I prepare for the hysterosalpingogram (HSG)?

ANSWER

Your doctor might tell you to take an over-the-counter pain medication an hour before your HSG. She may also have you take an antibiotic. She’ll discuss her recommendations with you beforehand.

You’ll likely be able to drive yourself home after the procedure, but you might want a friend or loved one to pick you up in case you don’t feel well.
