Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. HSG examination or hysterosalpingography, is an examination using x-rays to see the condition of the uterus and its surrounding area. The difference with the usual X-ray examination is that in this examination, a contrast liquid (dye) that can be detected by X-rays is sprayed into the female organs. This is done because without contrast, normally the female organs cannot be seen by X-ray examination. With the presence of dye, can describe the shape and structure of the female organs.
This examination is important, especially for women who have trouble getting pregnant or have frequent miscarriages. With an HSG examination, it can be seen if the problem is difficult to get pregnant because there is a structural abnormality in the ovary tract, for example. If there is an abnormality in the tube that connects the ovaries and uterus (fallopian tube), it can be difficult for the sperm to meet the egg and it may be difficult for the woman to get pregnant. The illustration of the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes is in the image below.
Regarding the results your wife got, the examination revealed that the shape and size of the uterus were normal, as were the shape and size of the fallopian tubes. The two tubes did not leak and there were no blockages. However, it was found that there was an inconsistency between the filling of the dye in the left and right fallopian tubes, so that adhesions were possible. This is yet to be reviewed and should be combined with the results of a history and physical examination.
Our advice, if your wife feels that she still has not received clear information from the obstetrician, your wife has the right to ask questions until she understands, or arrange other appointments for consultation, because it is your wife's right to understand what happened to her and how to follow it up. Talking directly is important because without meeting and examining your wife in person, it is not impossible that there may be misunderstandings in the information we convey. Therefore, what you can get from us should you clarify again with the doctor who treated your wife. So, hopefully it answers your question.
