Does it hurt? It would be awful if you were awake for this operation. Luckily you go to sleep. Usually pain is very limited after the surgery, but this also depends on why your ovaries are being removed. Studies now suggest that unless there is good reason, leaving the ovaries in place may optimize your health unless there is medical necessity to remove both the tubes and the ovaries.
Depends. Pain with an hsg is usually associated with spasm of the uterotubal junction. Gentle administration of the dye by a compassionate physician can avoid this problem. Other causes of pain could be associated with tubal obstruction or uterine defects. Another was to reduce pain is to administer smooth muscle relaxant prior to the procedure.
