Hello Angelis,

I can appreciate your concern. What type of operation has been suggested? Is it a hysterectomy or the removal of your uterus?
Has the physician said that you would no be able to have a baby?

When you see the doctor again, be sure you understand what is planned and what to expect after the surgery. dDo not be afraid to ask questions and a repeat explanation until you fully understand what is planned. Take a trusted friend or relative with you.

Please keep us updated.

Hello Laya,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Thank you for reaching out to us. I will try to explain, as best as I can. However, your physician is your best resource. Please speak with your doctor, and ask for an explanation that you understand before you have the procedure.

For the benefit of all our readers, a hysterosalpingogram, or HSG is a test that examines the fallopian tubes and uterus. The test is done for women who are having difficulty getting pregnant.

A HSG test is done in the radiology department of a hospital.
Radiographic contrast (dye) is injected into the uterine cavity through the vagina and cervix. The uterine cavity fills with dye and if the fallopian tubes are open, dye fills the tubes and spills into the abdominal cavity

Pictures are taken using a steady beam of X-ray as the dye passes through the uterus and fallopian tubes.

The pictures can show problems such as an injury or abnormal structure of the uterus or fallopian tubes, or a blockage that would prevent an egg moving through a fallopian tube to the uterus. A blockage also could prevent sperm from moving into a fallopian tube and fertilizing an egg.

A hysterosalpingogram also may find problems on the inside of the uterus that prevent a fertilized egg from implanting to the uterine wall. My guess is this is what your doctor was referring to.
