What is Hysterosalpingogram (HSG)?

Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) is an X-ray test of female fertility potential. This is performed to examine the fallopian tubes and uterus of a woman who is having difficulty becoming pregnant. Also, it can give a hint on miscarriages resulting from disorders within the uterus and determining the existence and severity of tumor masses, uterine fibroids, and adhesions. It is a noninvasive medical test that helps our doctors evaluate the shape and structure of the uterus, any scarring within the uterine or abdominal cavity, and the openness of the fallopian tubes. It is also used to monitor the effects of tubal surgery such as:

  • The cessation of the fallopian tubes in a sterilization reversal and a sterilization procedure
  • Blockage of the fallopian tubes because of scarring or infection
  • The re-opening of the fallopian tubes following a disease-related blockage or sterilization
  • Tubal ligation

How Should You Prepare for Hysterosalpingogram?

Hysterosalpingogram is performed in the Radiology Department of Motherhood Hospital after cessation of menstruation but before ovulation. If you have an active inflammatory condition, an untreated sexually transmitted disease, or a chronic pelvic infection, inform the doctors prior to the procedure.

The night before the procedure you may be asked to take a drug to clear your bowel so that the uterus and surrounding structures can be examined clearly. You may also be asked to take medication to reduce any discomfort. During the procedure, you may have to lie down face up on the test table and bring your feet up like a frog leg position. Then, the doctor will place a speculum in the vagina and visualizes the cervix. A small balloon or a small tube is inserted into the uterus, and clear x-ray fluid is injected into the uterus. In the uterine cavity and fallopian tubes, the passage of the fluid is being monitored by fluoroscopy. Once, the procedure is finished, the instruments are removed from the vagina and cervix. You can expect the test results on the same day.

The test may also help to determine abnormalities of the uterine cavity including fibroids, scar tissue, deformity, or polyps, and the blockage of the fallopian tubes.
