You should be evaluated by your doctor. ...Read more

At appmnt for sonohysterogram, tech does tvs first then says fluid in my uterus made polyp show clearly & no need for shg. Is this correct or lazy?

Likely: At age 50, the hsg wasn't being performed to see if tubes were open due to fertility concerns, thus if only trying to see if there was a lesion in the cavity, it seems as if the tech did find a lesion.
