As far as I can remember, there was no preparation needed. I am not able to remember if I needed to go in with a full bladder or not but your doctor will tell you that.
The test lasts just about 2-3 minutes. For me, it caused minor cramping. In fact, I was in more discomfort during my pap smear than this test.
Its a messy test in that the dye can leak out when you stand up after the test. They usually have pads in their bathrooms. But its better to go prepared.
I could drive myself home after the test with no problem.

Good luck...
