Hysterosalpingogram (HSG)

Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) at the Center for Reproductive Medicine

In order to effectively treat fertility conditions, we must first understand what causes them. The Center for Reproductive Medicine provides a full range of fertility testing procedures at our Central Florida-area offices, including hysterosalpingograms (HSG).

By injecting X-ray contrast liquid into the uterine cavity and monitoring its progress through the reproductive system, we can detect blockages in the fallopian tubes, as well as a uterine septum or other abnormalities that could cause infertility or pregnancy complications. This fertility testing technique is also sometimes used in combination with a treatment procedure known as tubal cannulization.

HSG is a minimally invasive procedure that’s typically very safe, although you shouldn’t have an HSG if you're pregnant, have a pelvic infection or are experiencing heavy uterine bleeding. HSGs are typically performed during the first half of your menstrual cycle (days 1-14) to reduce the risk of your being pregnant.
