When should you call your doctor after an HSG?

ANSWER

HSG is relatively safe, but you may have problems if you have an allergic reaction to the dye in the fluid. Pelvic infection or injury to your uterus are also possible. Call your doctor right away if you have any of the following:

  • Vaginal discharge that smells unpleasant
  • Fainting
  • Severe pain or cramping in your abdomen
  • Vomiting
  • Heavy vaginal bleeding
  • Fever
