Laparoscopy: A look inside your belly with a laparoscope under general anesthesia will tell if you have fallopian tubes or not.
Dr. Michael Gabor

No,: it usually means they are blocked or in temporary spasm, so the HSG contrast cannot get into them and they cannot be seen on xray.

I had a hysterosalpingogram. Could this have shown my endometriosis?

Dr. Alfredo Nieves
Gynecology 40 years experience
No: The hysterosalpingogram mainly shows if the tubes are open or closed, if there is any scarring in the endometrial cavity or any other defect in the cavity that may affect implantation. Laparoscopy is the gold standard for the diagnosis of endometriosis.

Happens all the time: Eggs are picked up by the fallopian tube and if not fertilized melt away. A fertilized egg, or embryo, can get caught in a blind cul de sac in the fallopian tube, possibly resulting in an ectopic, or tubal pregnancy.
