Why might HSG be needed (infertility)? Can I refuse it? What are alternatives? Can I ask for anesthesia? Very prone to anxiety, low pain threshold.
HSG wow: Hsg is appropriate (at some point) for all females undergoing fertility treatment. It tests your tubes; the alternative test is surgery. Of course you can refuse it, but some doctors - me for instance - will not treat you (prescriptions) more than 3 cycles if you decline. No one will give you general anesthesia, some will give valium for anxiety (i don't ever), but that's another story.). ...Read more

In the US if you are of childbearing age, you'll probably be required to do it, especially in a hospital setting, or surgical suite. In office procedure may be different. ...Read more

Almost none: There are rare cases of patients having an allergy to the contrast material (dye) that is used during the procedure. If someone has a known allergy to x-ray dye from a previous x-ray procedure (ex. Cat scan or ivp study) they can still have the procedure but would be pre-medicated with steroids and anti-histamines prior to the exam. ...Read more
Yes - it's ok: The paraovarioan cyst will not interfere with the hsg. The hsg checks the pathway of your eggs and will ensure that your tubes are open and that the endometrium (area of the uterus where the baby will develop) is structurally normal. ...Read more
Many other reasons: The hsg checked your tubes and the inside cavity of your uterus. The most common other issues are: low egg supply (diminished ovarian reserve), problems with ovulation including polycystic ovarian syndrome (pcos), hormonal problems like thyroid or prolactin issues, endometriosis, fibroids and/or sperm problems. Your partner needs a semen analysis. See a rei specialist for help getting pregnant. ...Read more

Not why done!: Neither test is primarily done to, "clear out the tubes". The hsg is done to evaluate the tubes for patency, strictures, scarring, dilatation, etc. Tubes that are otherwise normal appearing but with mucous plugs may be cleared by the hsg. The sis may have similar results but if there are other tubal issues there could then be increased risk of ectopic implantation. ...Read more
Happens: Some doctors grab the cervix with a device that actually makes a small puncture which can cause a little spotting. Should not be a big deal. I preferred devices that grabbed with vacuum without making a puncture. ...Read more

If one has bilateral loculated spillage as the result of an hsg? Does one require surgery for repair? And why do some drs think its not a problem?
Tubal damage: It means there is some damage to both tubes. But both tubes may still work well, they may work poorly or may not work at all. Surgery may tell you more information but not likely to help that much. You must take the tubes together with everything else (i.e. Better if sperm and eggs and uterus all look good). ...Read more
