An HSG involves placing an iodine-based dye through the cervix and taking x-rays to help evaluate the shape of the uterus and whether or not the fallopian tubes are open or blocked.

An HSG may be ordered as part of an infertility work-up. It's also commonly ordered if a woman has experienced two or more miscarriages, since abnormal uterine shape can cause recurrent pregnancy loss.

The HSG helps the doctor check out two important factors: 
An RGU is conducted for patients in whom an abnormality of the urethra is suspected after clinical evaluation and other relevant investigations such as an ultrasound scanning have taken place.
Whether or not the fallopian tubes are blocked or open
Whether or not the shape of the uterus is normal.
In 10% to 15% of women with recurrent pregnancy loss, an abnormally shaped uterus is to blame. Some uterine abnormalities can be treated with surgery.
An HSG helps your doctor evaluate the shape of the uterus and detect blocked fallopian tubes.
