Diagnostic Image Porn

No, this isn't some crazy version of "Good Night Moon".  It's my beautiful uterus and tubes!  I'm kind of a nerd and into all things reproductive and birth related (duh, I'm a doula, we're weird like that!)


So, here, for your viewing pleasure, are images of my hysterosalpingogram (HSG).  It was not bad at all -- save for that damn clamp on the cervix which caused some cramping. 



At the bottom of image you see the clamp holding my cervix and catheter in cervix through to uterus.  This is before the dye is injected into the uterus.





Here, you can see the uterus begin to fill with the contrast dye

Tubes beginning to fill, and uterus is clearer

Uterus and Tubes Full the whispy white areas outside of the uterus is dye spill over into the peritoneal cavity shows tubes are nice and open.

Side view - but not sure which side is which, but I think this is the left side

Left side view again (I think)

I'm pretty sure this is a transverse view. As you can see in all of these images, my uterus is a bit "arcurate" meaning the top of my fundus dips down toward the center as opposed to being more straight across.  i'm told this shouldn't make a difference in my fertility, however there is a chance that this is a bit of fibroid material, but it shoudln't affect anything at this stage
