HSG query


I’ve been looking at HSG dye tests, my last one was in August under NHS and I’ve come across an article from last May that said oil based dye was way more effective than water based when used for fertility.

Has anyone had an oil based HSG? I’m guessing NHS use water based - happy to hear anyone’s thoughts.

I wonder if having a few HSG’s would be beneficial for slow/sluggish tubes.

Be good to know, I think I’m going to enquire about another hsg with oil this time. It makes the experience feel pointless if it doesn’t work and then you find out that there’s something much more effective xx
