The Hysterosalpingogram is a low dose x-ray of your pelvis to determine if your fallopian tubes are open. A radio-opaque contrast or “dye” is gently instilled into the uterus so that we can see the outline of your uterine cavity and fallopian tubes. The procedure takes only a few minutes and can be performed onsite at Spring, by our fertility specialists.
How it helps: The HSG tells us if the fallopian tubes are open or blocked. If they are blocked, then we will need to do In vitro fertilization (IVF) in order to bypass the tubes and help the egg and sperm to meet. If they are open, we may be able to try treatments like Intrauterine insemination (IUI).
