Hysterosalpingogram test is a procedure that helps to view the condition of the uterus and fallopian tubes via an x-ray. It a nutshell it determines whether the fallopian tubes have a partial or full blockage and whether the uterus has the right shape.

It is carried out on couples who have or are experiencing delay conceiving and bearing children.

Getting pregnant can be quite difficult for people with reproductive disorders. The fallopian tubes, uterus, and ovaries must all be in good condition for a woman to get pregnant.

So therefore, the HSG test is one of the first carried out when trying to determine the reasons behind a woman’s inability to get pregnant. Women that have experienced miscarriages (one or more) should also take this test.
