A 25-year-old female asked:

what does it mean to have no visualization of tubes on hsg?

It means that: the contrast injected into the uterine cavity did not get into the Fallopian tubes. The can be due to either blockage/obstruction of the tubes, or temporary spasm of the tubes. Normally, the tubes are open, and contrast freely passes from the uterine cavity into the tubes.
Dr. Gerard Honore
Fertility Medicine 29 years experience
Can't see them: When tubes are not seen on HSG (barring technical issues) it means no contrast (dye, "ink") goes into the tubes so they are not seen. That makes the likelihood high. but not certain, that the tubes are blocked "proximally," meaning at their near end.

Imagery technique: Guided imagery involves the use of selective awareness to carefully choose your thoughts, emotions, and the images they give rise to. Imagery is the language your mind speaks and is ideal for communicating with your mind and discovering what it is telling you. By wisely guiding your imagination gradually towards an accepting, focused state of awareness, you change your mind and change your life.
