15-20 minutes: Saline ultrasound is also called sonohysterogram. It is like your pelvic exam with speculum inserted except then a small catheter is inserted through the cervix to infuse the saline. The sonogram probe is re-inserted and the endometrial lining is carefully observed while the saline goes in, distending the canal. You may experience cramping during and after this test.
