*Saline infusion sonohysterography (SIS or SHG) is a procedure to evaluate the uterus and the shape of the uterine cavity. SHG uses ultrasound and sterile fluid to show the uterus and endometrial (uterine lining) cavity. The ovaries are also seen at the time of SHG. The purpose is to detect any abnormalities.The most common serious complication with SHG is pelvic infection. However, this occurs less than 1% of the time and usually occurs when a woman also has a block or infection of the fallopian tubes.
It was suggested by my gyne to maybe start to get some idea on if I had any problems inside since I have painful periods, and I also had a regular ultrasound done elsewhere before this for the same issue but the pictures weren't good and she recommended to do this instead of redoing a regular one for a better image inside. But if I had PID before I certainly didnt know about it.
