Explanation Of The Results Of Hysterosalpingography (HSG)?
The doctor asked for help in reading my HSG results as follows: – visible contrast fills the uterine cavity – good shape, no visible defect filling or additional shadow – contrast appears filling the right tube first and then the contrast appears in the tube
Good morning, thanks for the question
Hysterosalpingography (HSG) is the main examination method to assess patency of the ovaries in the female reproductive system especially in cases of infertility. During the examination, a contrast agent was inserted to fill the fallopian tubes and then photographed with x-ray rays. If the structure of the uterus is intact and the fallopian tubes are blocked, contrast substances can flow in unhindered. If there are no obstacles, it means that the egg and sperm should be able to fertilize the ovaries.
The results of the HSG examination revealed that there was no obstacle because the contrast could enter both ovaries, or both patent channels. This examination is a supplementary examination in which the results need to be reconfirmed with symptoms and prior physical examination. Therefore, do consultations again with the treating doctor for the HSG results and for further treatment plans.
So, hopefully can help
