is hsg fallopian tube test painful?

Not really: The hsg causes cramps. The discomfort one has can depend on such factors as her pain tolerance as well as who does the procedure and his/her expertise. For example, i perform all hsg's on my own patients and have done so for over 20 years. My techniques give less discomfort, for example, compared to a doctor who only does them on occasion or has only done them for a few years.

Unclear: Try restating your question. The dye from HSG would be absorbed by your body and excreted through your kidney.
