Hysterosalpingography (HSG) involves the use of an x-ray contrast solution which is injected through the cervical canal. The solution fills the uterus, passes through the tubes and spills into the abdominal cavity where it is absorbed by the body. X-rays are taken of the solution's progress. The purpose of the test is to evaluate the shape of the uterus and patency of the tubes. Patients may take Advil or Motrin one hour before the procedure to reduce the cramping. If you are very apprehensive, the doctors may prescribe a stronger medicine for the discomfort. The results of the test are immediately available and will be discussed with you. Although the radiation exposure is minimal, you need to avoid pregnancy during that cycle. A radiologist assists during the procedure and you will be receiving a bill from us and from the radiologist.
