    Hey I have my HSG exam tomorrow. And I was told to some pills called DoxyCycline a day before my exam. The pills however are kinda big and I have a hard time swallowing it. Do I really need to take these pills ?

    Has any one taken their HSG exam with OUT taking this medication and everything was ok ? Please let me Know

    Thanks

    It's a prophylactic anti biotic. I assume prophylactic as you haven't mentioned any infections. I would take them as you don't want to get a skelping infection.

    To swallow them, don't tip you head back this makes the tablet float, instead take a big mouthful of juice and tip your head forward so the tablet floats to the back of your mouth.

    Hope this helps.

    Good luck with your HSG. I have mine this month & am feeling very apprehensive about it
