A sonohystograms is an excellent to evaluate the uterine cavity but a less effective way to evaluate the fallopian tubes. An HSG is an excellent tool to evaluate the fallopian tubes but not so great at checking the uterine cavity. In your case, the HSG results will be more reliable to assess the tubes.
