This xray is used to examine a woman’s uterus and fallopian tubes. Dye is injected 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 PRIOR to 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 physican will also revied the results with you at the time that the xray is performed.
It is important to let your doctor know if you are allergic to iodine, shellfish, or if you have had a previous reaction to dye used for a medical test.
