Fallopian tube punctured during selective hsg. The dr. Says it will almost always heal itself. Another dr. Not so sure. Is this true or not?
Hard to know: Thankfully, this is not a common situation, so there aren't good studies available to know what the chances of healing afterward will be.

Take a HSG test: A hysterosalpingogram or hsg test is an x-ray dye test that makes sure that both fallopian tubes are open and look normal. It also checks for an abnormal-shaped uterus, for polyps, fibroids or scar tissue inside the uterus, and for scar tissue around the fallopian tubes. Ultrasound scans with contrast can also check for at least one open tube, but it's not as good a test as a hsg. ...Read more
Hysterosalpingogram: During a hysterosalpingram dye is injected via the vagina into the uterus. If the tubes are patent (open) the dye will flow out of the tubes into the abdominal cavity.
