Post subject: should i pay???
after my ep i went to the gp (not my usual gp just a locum) to discuss having the hsg test to see if my remaining left tube is ok ad she said that as i had my reversal done privatly i would more than likely hve to pay for the hsg test. Does anyone know if this is true and if i do need to end up payin does anyone have a clue how much it may cost?. I have an app booked with my normal gp for the 8th july but would ike to go in fully prepared so any advice or past experiences greatly appreciated

hi, im not certain that the NHS can refuse to refer you for a HSG. It may depend on if you were offered an after care package after your reversal as part of your private treatment. Find that out for sure from the hospital that carried out your privste procedure and then go armed with all your info/reasons why you need this.

the last price list i saw for private HSG was between 340 to 530 but this was part of IVf investigations so may be less if its a straight forward test. If your GP isnt sure though ask them to contact the gynaecology unit to check for sure. Dont just leave the surgery feeling they didnt check for certain. good luck x

Hi hun i am not completely sure, but i have a feeling that if the care is linked to previous care you have recieved privately the nhs may refuse to continue the care....depending on whether they consider it to be the same episode of care or not. I am not sure of how much it would cost, but go to your gp and ask Smile

HI Hun,
I had to have a HSG done privately at a Nuffield (340) - then i had an ectopic - was referred to the gynae cons after at my request - and he did a lap & dye on the NHS free. I have to say if you manage to get this done, please speak to them before they do the procedure about them trying to unblock any damage - some are willing, some arent. (mine was a pig and refused - and i refused to see him again - i found a lovely lady instead, who i wish i'd had instead).

Good luck,

Julie xx
