The procedure

 A radiologist will insert a vaginal speculum. X-ray contrast material, also known as x-ray dye, will be injected into your uterus through a special catheter and several x-ray films will be taken.

You will then be asked to sleep on your tummy for a few minutes, then another film is taken to assess the presence of any adhesions detected.
