can dye unblock tubes through hsg?

Yes: Actually there is a slightly higher pregnancy rate in women within 3 months of having an hsg. Sometimes pushing dye through can unblock a tube. Usually a significantly damaged and blocked tube will still be blocked after the hsg.

Unclear: Try restating your question. The dye from HSG would be absorbed by your body and excreted through your kidney.
