The HSG is the test your doctor will perform to look for device placement and occlusion (blockage).
Ideal placement will be 3-8 turns of the outer coil trailing into the uterus.
HSG consists of 2 parts. 1) coil location 2) occlusion
Both have to be noted as satisfactory to rely on Essure as contraception
The HSG report SHOULD state grade and whether or not tubes are occluded
Grade 2 is what is considered the correct placement to rely on Essure as permanent contraception
After your HSG, ask for the images to be burned onto a CD for you. This will come in handy for future medical reference. Also, go to the medical records department where you had the HSG done, and request a copy of the HSG report. This is very important. Having copies of your medical records helps you to understand and see exactly what is inside of your reproductive organs. Not many doctors even know what Essure is. To have your report and imaging will help you to educate any physician in the future.
