Hysterosalpingogram (HSG)


Hysterosalpingogram (HSG)

What is HSG?

A hysterosalpingogram can examine the inside of the uterus and fallopian tubes, including the surrounding areas. This procedure is done with an X-ray test after the injection of contrast material through the cervix.

Why do the procedure?

This procedure can determine whether or not the fallopian tubes have any blockages. It can even determine if the uterus is a normal shape and size. HSG is often done to determine if there is anything preventing pregnancy. 

When to do the procedure?

It is best to do the procedure 6-10 days after starting a menstrual cycle but can be performed in the first half of the menstrual cycle (1-14 days). The procedure cannot be done if you are pregnant, have a pelvic infection, or have uterine bleeding.
