We will call you as soon as we have your test results. The time it takes to get results depends on the tests that are ordered with your procedure. Most of the time the tests that are ordered are:
Your nurse and/or a pharmacist will talk with you about your medicine(s) before you go home.
Eat and drink as normal.
Do not lift over 15 pounds for 24 hours after your procedure.
You may have some cramping of the uterus after this procedure. It may last up to 24 hours. It often gets better on its own. Take Tylenol® as needed.
