Can Anesthesia be used during a HSG scan?

I once had an HSG 2 years ago but other events overtook so not much was done, on my part. Now am ready to check my system and do the needful for pregnancy in a new hospital and am being requested to do another HSG bc the previous one might not be too useful. The last HSG was painful and I wana suggest the use of anaethesia but don t know if it s got any negative sides to it. Will appreciate your advise. Thank you.

Hi,

You can do the procedure under sedation or spinal anesthesia so that you won’t feel any pain.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
