Our expert says:
You don’t mention your age, or why an angiogram has been recommended. From the questions you ask, it sounds as though you are young and probably pre-menopausal and therefore at low risk for coronary artery disease. If so, I am curious to know why an angiogram has been recommended.
To answer your questions:
1.The test is done through the artery in your groin (not the vein). You can feel the artery yourself, pulsating in the groin crease halfway along the line between the midline and the bony bump in front of your hip joint.
2.Your legs will not be in stirrups but will be flat on the table.
3. A small amount of pubic hair might be removed but usually this is not necessary.
4 & 5. Neither your breasts nor vagina will be exposed.
6. You may have mild discomfort in your groin afterwards for a day or two, but nothing bad enough to affect your sex life.
I hope this is helpful.
Kind regards JT.
