Hysterosalpingography (HSG)

What is HSG?

HSG is an X-ray procedure that is used to view the inside of the uterus and fallopian tubes. It is often to check the patency of fallopian tubes. Fallopian tubes can either be bilaterally patent, partly patent or bilaterally blocked. HSG can also show if the inside of the uterus is anatomically normal in shape and size.

When is HSG done?

HSG is usually done from day six to day eleven of your menstrual cycle. This procedure is usually done before ovulation as this period of time has slim chances of patients being pregnant.

Can I get HSG done here?

Yes you can. If you are planning to get a HSG done, you can call us anytime of the working hours and make an appointment. Upon consulting Dr, we will make arrangements for your procedure.

A thin catheter containing dye is inserted into the cervix and the dye is released. The flow of the dye is observed to determine the patency of the tubes.
