At my HSG dye x-ray the nurse could not continue as she could not get the catheter tube through my cervix, which I believe is not uncommon. However, how would I have IVF treatment through my cervix as the procedure is similar?

The HSG (hystero-salpingogram) test involves placing quite a thick tube through the 'canal' of your cervix. How easily it passes through depends on how narrow the canal of your cervix is, when the test is done in relation to your cycle, how easy it is to see your cervix, the thickness of the tube being passed and how experienced the doctor or nurse is in doing this. So you shouldn't be concerned as it is very likely that further procedures-including IVF-could be performed easily with some care and prior thought by the medical team looking after you.
