Introductory Information

This test outlines the uterus and fallopian tubes using X-rays to visualize a dye passed through the neck of the womb. The procedure is usually done between days 5 and 12 of your menstrual cycle counting the first day flow as day one. Contraception must be used from the preceding menstrual period to ensure that you are not pregnant. The test cannot be done during the time of the menstrual flow.
There may be some cramps during the procedure which can be reduced by taking acetaminophen (Tylenol) or (Advil) two tablets approximately one hour before the test is done.
There is a small chance of infection after this test, particularly of the fallopian tubes have been previously damaged. If you develop increasing pain or fever after this test telephone our office or go to the Emergency department of your closest hospital as soon as possible to arrange for immediate treatment.
All information is explained in Hindi, Punjabi or Urdu as required for patients, who don’t read or speak English.
