Hysterosalpingography, also known as uterosalpingography, is a radiologic procedure to investigate the shape of the uterine cavity and the shape and patency of the fallopian tubes.
What is HSG?
Hysterosalpingography uses a real-time form of x-ray called fluoroscopy to examine the uterus and fallopian tubes of a woman who is having difficulty becoming pregnant. It's also used to investigate miscarriages resulting from abnormalities within the uterus and to determine the presence and severity of tumor masses, adhesions and uterine fibroids. Hysterosalpingography can occasionally open blocked fallopian tubes to allow the patient to become pregnant afterwards.
Tell your doctor if there's a possibility you are pregnant and discuss any recent illnesses, medical conditions, allergies and medications you're taking. This procedure should not be performed if you have an active inflammatory condition. Tell your physician or technologist if you have a chronic pelvic infection or an untreated sexually transmitted disease. Wear loose, comfortable clothing and leave jewelry at home. You may be asked to wear a gown.
