Hysterosalpingogram

Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) is a test done to see if a woman has the ability to conceive. A dye is sent through the cervix to the uterus and up the fallopian tubes. Then, x-rays are taken to check for any abnormalities or blockages that may be stopping the eggs from passing through to the uterus. The test also checks to see if there is any problem with the uterus and the implantation of the egg. This test is done in a radiology department by your OBGYN and usually takes about 30 minute to complete. You may feel cramping similar to menstrual cramps during the procedure. Prior to the test you will be asked to fast for several hours prior to procedure, and to empty your bladder before the test. After the procedure is completed you may have a little discharge for the next couple days. Do not use tampons during this time. Please contact your OBGYN doctor if you experience a heavy discharge or it continues longer than a couple days or you develop a fever.
