Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

What is the meaning of HSG test? The uterine tubes are patent bilaterally. There is bilateral spontaneous contrast médium spillage into the peritoneal cavity. The contrast filled uterine cavity demonstrates normal morphology with a central immobile smooth spherical filling defect.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

HSG is hysterosalpingogram, X-ray while spilling contrast from the cervix to see patency of tubes. Due to infection, endometriosis and infertility issues, tubes could be blocked. So, to check the patency of tubes this test is advised. This report (attachment removed to protect patient identity) shows normal or healthy, patent tubes. No abnormality.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
