Yes: It can be normal to miss a period after an hsg test. Depending on where you were at in your cycle when you had the hsg, in addition what were the reasons you were having the hsg? Often women's fertility is increased after getting an hsg, so keep that in mind in case you are trying to get pregnant, or trying to avoid getting pregnant. Hope that helps!

Now: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex.

It can be: If this has been your norm for a number of years, it may very well be normal. If this is new for you, it may not be. If its new you could have some issues with ovulation, abnormal thyroid levels, hyperprolactinemia or even pregnancy. However, some women are lucky enough to have very light very short periods.
