To see if blocked: Essure provides sterilization by using small flexible microinserts which help the tubes to naturally occlude. Three months alter an hsg is ordered to confirm that the tubes are blocked. This has allowed essure to have the lowest failure rate. Some are investigating the use of sonograms done in the office to take the place of the hsg confirmation test, but not yet approved by fda. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Depends on...: Depends what the laparoscopic procedure is, also depends on your individual surgical risk profile and the comfort level of your surgeon. For example: for a tubal ligation it's probably not needed, for a retro peritoneal node dissection it is. I almost never use any bowel prep for the fertility and endometriosis surgeries i do. ...Read more
Does HSG image abnormality inside of tube, i.e. narrowing, subtle blockage that cannot be imaged by laparoscopy dye injection? Is there need for HSG if laparoscopy says tube is open (ectopic history)

Clarification: You will need to get clarification on the findings. Opacification just means that the tubes were whited out. That is what one expects on an HSG. What you need to know is if they are patent (open). Contact the ordering physician and ask them to clarify the findings. ...Read more
Maybe: The main reason to perform a hysterosalpingogram (hsg) is to identify possible sources of infertility. Contrast dye is placed inside the uterine cavity and should fill the fallopian tubes and leak into the pelvis. This test can identify a blocked tube or find developmental problems with the uterus. Occasionally, the dye can open a blocked tube, in which case it could enhance fertility. ...Read more
Hysteroscopy: Hysteroscopy looks at the inside of the uterus. I'm not aware of needing to clean out your digestion (you do clean out your colon to get ready for a colonoscopy). If the procedure needs general anesthesia for some reason, then you will be asked to not eat or drink for some time before the operation. ...Read more

Pcos woman on clomid (clomiphene) ,then hcg injection is taken to trigger ovulation,what is required thickness of uterus before triggering ovulation?
Yes: There are many women who have had successful pregnancies after uae. The data is relatively weak, but seems to indicate that fertility after embolization is similar to fertility after multiple myomectomy. A patient needs to discuss the details of her individual situation with her doctors before deciding on a therapy. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
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. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Hystero : A hysterisalpingogram is a test to determine if fallopian tubes are patent and to look at shape of endometrial cavity and to make sure no polyps are in the endometrium. A speculum and catheter are inserted into the vagina and cervix and dye is injected and x-rays are taken as the procedure is done. The exam sometimes can be a little uncomfortable but in experienced hands should be fine. ...Read more
Possible discomfort.: The hysterosalping is a test to evaluate the status of your fallopian tubes for patency, as well as evaluates the contour and shape of your uterine cavity. A speculum is placed in to the vagina and then a small metal instrument is passed through the cervical opening. This can cause some mild to moderate cramping. A small amount of dye is placed in to the uterus which can also cause discomfort. ...Read more

Simple: I perform them every week. I place a speculum in the vagina, clean the cervix, and inject some dye through the cervix. I would estimate 90% of my patients feel nothing and the remainder have minimal cramping. It is extremely rare for a patient to have pain. It makes a difference whether a radiologist or a fertility specialist performs the test. ...Read more

Shouldn't be bad: An hsg typically has the same set up as a pap smear. A small catheter is inserted into the cervix held in place with a little balloon that gets inflated to hold it in place. This may cause cramping, it shouldn't be severe. Once the contrast is injected, it shouldn't hurt if it's a low volume low pressure hsg for essure test. If it's for infertility, it may cause slight pain. Take nsaids prior. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Possibly pregnant: Most hysterosalpingograms (hsg) are done for infertility. The patient should be instructed to schedule the hsg before the 10th day of the menstrual cycle . To avoid the bleeding which may cause difficulty in performing and interpretation, the hsg is optimally done on day 5 through 10. The hsg could disrupt a fetus if an early pregnancy develops during the later more fertile dates of the cycle. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I went for a hysterosalpingogram but unfortunately they were not able to do as they could not get through my cervix what will be the next step?
Hsg: You should see your doctor to evaluate if the cervix is stenotic (almost closed) or is the uterus tilted at a sharp angle preventing entry of the catheter. Depending on the finding certain things may help. For example, a full bladder may help with a sharp angle, or medications can be used in cases of cervical stenosis. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
