How Do I Prepare?

If you are not bleeding heavily, you might want to take an NSAID medicine such as ibuprofen one to two hours before the test, to reduce the possibility of uterine cramps during the procedure. Ask your physician for a recommendation ahead of time.

It is best to avoid tampon use and avoid using vaginal creams during the day leading up to the procedure.
