Q. Should I undergo a tubal laparoscopy or would a HSG suffice?

Hello doctor,

I had a one-day period during my last menstrual cycle. After 14 days, I had pink spotting for three days. Then it turned to a brown discharge and then a normal bleeding like my menstruation. All this went on for 10 days. Today, the bleeding is very light. I am trying to conceive. My gynecologist advised me to have an HSG test. But, since I have the bleeding now, can I go for the HSG test once this bleeding stops?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Yes, once the bleeding has completely stopped, you can go for the hysterosalpingography test. So, please wait until then. Once the period gets over, immediately on the next day, you can go for the test. However, if you have a doubt, get back to me.

Take care.

Thank you doctor,

My doctor initially advised me to have a laparoscopy done but, I insisted for an HSG test first. I do not have an intense pelvic pain, pain during intercourse, or heavy bleeding. Then why did my doctor advise me so?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • HSG will give us an idea only about the inner lining of the uterus and the tubes and the tubal patency. But, laparoscopy will give us an overall idea about the uterus, the tubes, and the ovaries as well.
  • Maybe, that is the reason he suggested laparoscopy. However, if you have a doubt then get back to me.

Take care.
