I'm so sorry alzora! Please don't blame yourself. Something may not be working right, but it's not because you are doing anything wrong. I am sure your husband doesn't blame you at all. For your HSG question: my reproductive endocrinologist performed the procedure, so she told me what was going on while it was happening. I would guess that in your case, the radiologist will send the results to your OBGYN and you will follow up with him/her. Don't give up hope yet. There are still a lot of unknowns for you right now. The HSG will tell you a lot, and depending on those results, your husband may also need to be tested. When is your HSG? I'll be praying you get good results!Wife to Jordan.

Oh Alzora, hang in there!!! If you need to take a break, we'll be here whenever you come back (we'll miss you but do what you need to to take care of yourself)! -That is why I haven't been around much. I really thought I was pregnant this month and I take these things so hard. My husband's birthday is this week and I had all these daydreams about managing to keep it a secret and then tell him as a special birthday wish come true. Ugh, why do I go ahead and fall in love with a baby who isn't even real? Anyway, I feel for you, I hate that you feel so bad. But really, this is not your fault. I hope this happens for you soon soon soon. I hope you get more complete info. asap and that it is good news.Mama to my dear little bear <3

Alzora-- the clinician (OB or RE) always performs it, as radiologists are not in the business of peering into anyone's vagina (inserting a speculum, inserting the catheter, etc). Even though the clinician might well see evidence of normal or abnormal findings on the HSG, it's the radiologist's job to actually interpret it and look for any associated findings, evaluate every structure seen on the films, etc.
Since it won't be an urgent test it usually takes about a week, give or take, to get the formal results.
From your self-gathered data your hormonal axis appears to be working perfectly. Even if it weren't that is of course no reason to beat yourself up, but it proves even more succintly how much this can be out of your hands.
In the interim if you're feeling frustrated and unproductive you might want to start researching what you'd like to do, and what options you'd have, if the HSG shows adhesions and tubal infertility. Look into local gynecologists and see if they offer anything on the tuboplasty spectrum, ask your OB/gyn or RE what their protocols are, etc. And didn't you mention you'll be getting on your husband's insurance this summer, which will broaden your provider options?
Lastly, as unhelpful as it might sound right now given how much you want a family, there are SO many things you will no longer be able to do or enjoy once you're pregnant or a mother. Why not give those things a whirl? Mix up a strong Cosmopolitan, enjoy a dinner/movie out, go on a day hike, take a road trip to visit college friends, do something spontaneous. I would really love to be able to do things like that every now and again, and won't really be able to for years. It might be fun to have a "countdown to imprisonment... I mean motherhood" bucket list.XY: Antoine Raphael (3.1.2012)

I'm so sorry Alzora. I can sympathize. Month after month without a positive can take its toll. But know that you are just starting the process of finding out what's going on and what the best course of action will be. Once you have some solid answers it will be easier. In the meantime, as hard and unhelpful as it sounds, just take it day by day. Maybe a Nameberry break would help for a ill bit. It can be hard to be so immersed in all things baby when you're struggling. I'll be thinking of you and hoping for better results in the near future.TTC #1
