Hysterosalpingogram (HSG)


An HSG X-ray examines a woman’s uterus and fallopian tubes. Your doctor will inject dye through the cervix into the uterus and fallopian tubes. This “dye” appears white on the X-ray and allows your specialist to see if there are any abnormalities, such as an unusually shaped uterus, tumors, scar tissue, or blockages in the fallopian tubes. If you are trying to get pregnant in the same cycle as an HSG, make sure to schedule the test before ovulation.

Your physician will perform your HSG themself so that you will have your results immediately available. We perform them quickly, and usually, you will have no pain or discomfort. Your physician will also review the results with you when they perform the X-ray.

It is essential to let your doctor know if you are allergic to iodine or shellfish or if you have had a previous reaction to the dye used for a medical test.

At Island Reproductive Services, we are available to perform this procedure and ready to help you in your journey. This test provides results that can showcase any problems you may not have known were going on. Are you interested in learning more? Contact our team today for more information.
