Hysterosalpingogram also named by the name uterosalpingography is a radiographic diagnostic study of the shape of fallopian tubes and uterus used to evaluate infertility. Uterine abnormality is a factor contributing to 50% of women with early pregnancy loss and 10% of infertile women. Hence, the assessment of uterus and fallopian tubes is a standardized approach towards infertility assessment. The radio-opaque material injection fills the uterus and fallopian tubes to indicate any spillage of material in the peritoneal cavity and tubal rupture.
Hysterosalpingogram is used in the workup of infertile females and diagnosis of uterine malformations, pelvic inflammatory disease, tubal occlusion and Asherman's syndrome. The chances of pregnancy increases after hysterosalpingogram as the trained radiographer or an interventional radiologist opens the proximally occluded fallopian tubes. Hysterosalpingogram test can be painful and hence an analgesic may be given before or after the procedure to reduce pain. Some doctors prescribe antibiotics before proceeding with the procedure to reduce the chances of infection.
