Is a HSG test an infertility treatment?

In brief: Sort of ...

The hsg is an x-ray test performed by gently pushing contrast through the tubes to see if they are open or blocked.
Some studies have shown an increase in pregnancy after the test but usually with a type of contrast that we do not use much anymore. Depending on your situation, you could try to conceive for a few months after the test. Mostly, we just push ahead. Best wishes.

In brief: No. Fertility test

The hsg (hysterosalpingogram) is usually done as a fertility diagnostic test.
You can still try to conceive the same month as you do the test - some get pregnant after hsg but it's not effective enough to call it fertility treatment. The hsg checks that both tubes are open, looks for problems inside your uterus like polyps or fibroids, and may find scar tissue inside the uterus or around the tubes.
