  » Infertility  »  Hysterosalpingogram (HSG)

This test is done in order to assess the anatomy of the endometrial cavity of the uterus and the fallopian tubes. The HSG is usually scheduled to be done between days 6 and 13 of the cycle - this also depends on the specifics of the woman's normal cycle.
This test is usually performed in the radiology department of a hospital.
About 25% of all infertility is due to a tubal factor.
