A hysterosalpingogram involves the insertion of a dye into the cervix, uterus, and fallopian tubes. An X-ray is then performed and examined by a radiologist. HSG’s are sometime done in peripheral hospital.
Intravenous sedation is used to avoid any discomfort or pain. Your fertility specialist will then examine the inside of the uterus, checking for any abnormalities, scarring, or growths. During this time, pictures can be taken to allow for further examination after the procedure is complete.
