    Abstract

    This study examines women’s experience of healthcare following the referral for hysterosalpingography (HSG) after a period of subfertility. These otherwise fit and healthy women enter the healthcare system and their only problem is a failure to become pregnant. They find themselves trying to negotiate a system designed for sick people. Previous research in this field consists mainly of studies comparing HSG to other diagnostic studies. The study aims to address the underlying issues that women have at the start of their subfertility investigations.
