Hysterosalpingogram (HSG)

What is an hysterosalpingogram (HSG)?

A hysterosalpingogram (HSG) is an imaging test that looks at the inside of the uterus and fallopian tubes. It is a common test performed on women who are having a hard time becoming pregnant (infertile).

How is an HSG done?

During an HSG, a speculum is placed into the vagina and a thin tube called a catheter is placed into the uterus through the cervix. Contrast media (commonly called X-ray dye) is then gently injected through the catheter while X-ray images are taken.

What does an HSG show?

An HSG can reveal problems that can affect fertility such as blockage of the fallopian tubes. A blockage may prevent sperm from moving into the fallopian tube and fertilizing an egg. An HSG can also find problems on the inside of the uterus that could prevent a fertilized egg from attaching (implanting) to the uterine wall.
