Default What is an HSG test?

My practitioner mentioned this during my last visit. I'll be having one next month. This is an X-ray test which will aid me in conceiving. Any ideas on this? Thanks!

HSG or hysterosalpingogram. Read on: SOURCE

During a hysterosalpingogram, a dye (contrast material) is put through a thin tube that is put through the vagina and into the uterus. Because the uterus and the fallopian tubes are hooked together, the dye will flow into the fallopian tubes. Pictures are taken using a steady beam of X-ray (fluoroscopy) as the dye passes through the uterus and fallopian tubes. The pictures can show problems such as an injury or abnormal structure of the uterus or fallopian tubes, or a blockage that would prevent an egg moving through a fallopian tube to the uterus. A blockage also could prevent sperm from moving into a fallopian tube and joining (fertilizing) an egg. A hysterosalpingogram also may find problems on the inside of the uterus that prevent a fertilized egg from attaching (implanting) to the uterine wall.

Hope this helps.
BTW, it's great that you'll be having this test. For sure, this will help you have a baby real soon. Good luck hun!

Never had one but all I know is that it's an X-Ray test that enables you to know the irregularities you have so you could rule them out immediately.

Nothing to worry about it, it's just that it may make you feel a little sore afterwards but nothing serious I believe. Good luck!

Thanks for these comments ladies, I'd probably undergo the test next month. Keep those posts coming so I'd get familiarized by it and not to feel so anxious by then!

Yup! Looks like you're not that used to getting sore! LOL. Kidding.
Yes, it's a post-procedure feeling resembling having a TVS.
