When Is The Best Time To Do HSG Test

When Is The Best Time To Do HSG Test


Alright, many of you will say that even though ultrasound is natural, HSG cannot be because of the use of ionizing radiation to produce images.
This is a Special X-Ray examination. This will tell if your fallopian tubes are open by injecting dye through the cervix. Blocked tubes and lesions or polyps on the uterine cavity can be found with this method.
I would have totally agreed with you in that area, until I realise that most of us have been living with ionising radiation everyday of our life, even without getting near an X-Ray machine.


Imagine the sun rays , it has electromagnetic radiation that are known to be harmful , but that does not stop us from staying under the ray everyday, from going to work, or even the market daily. In fact many people sunbath themselves at the beach as much as they like without fear that it could lead to skin cancer.
However , in the case of HSG, the radiation in use is so small and insignificant. The lady hardly ever undergo more than two HSG procedures in a year.
So it is natural and safe. Until recently HSG has been thought to be a very painful examination, but now, with the use of rubber HSG catheters, it has been almost painless with just a slight passing discomfort.

The beauty of HSG and SonoHSG [Sono-Hysterosalpingography] is that during the procedure , a dye is injected into the womb and fallopian tubes. The speed with which this dyes run through the tube, cause it to flush it.
In recent times the fallopian tubes have been discovered that, it can be partially blocked by mucous, which either closes the passage way or make it difficult for sperm cells to swim through and fertilise the egg.


During HSG procedures these ‘’MUCOUS PLUG’’ is flushed out and the sperm cells can now have free access to the egg. So pregnancy can now occur.
Many times, it has been shown that some ladies do become pregnant in one to three months after an HSG or Sono-HSG procedure without the use of any fertility drugs what so ever.
How natural can you get.
