Open tube @ HSG: It is possible for a blocked Fallopian tube to re-obstruct if you have internal adhesions. Sometimes the force of the dye injection will "open" a blocked tube and then it re-closes sometime thereafter. ...Read more

Is it possible for twisted fullopian tubes to retwist and block after surgery and dye test. Trouble ttc with no other problems.?

Is it possible for twisted fullopian tubes to retwist and block after surgery and dye test. Trouble ttc with no other problems.?

"Twisted sisters": The paired Fallopian tubes can twist (torsion) and block the sperm and egg from meeting each other. You did not say how they were "untwisted" so it is difficult to say at this point if they can twist again. If the Fallopian tubes were opened from the inside surgically and not twisted then they tend to remain open unless there is a Fallopian tube infection or adhesions present. (Salpingitis). ...Read more

Can your blocked fallopian tube be unblocked with blue dye?

Maybe, sometimes: Theoretically this makes sense but studies have failed to show this is clearly true. There are many kinds of block that will definitely NOT be unblocked with dye, whether it helps in other cases is still inconclusive. There are other methods for unblocking some tubes. Good wishes. ...Read more

Could one Fallopian tube be partially blocked if the HSG only showed a very thin minimal release of dye? Other tube was clear showing lots of die.

An obstruction: Would cause the tube to dilate proximal to it. However, there are other abnormalities, such as inflammation/scarring, that can cause an abnormally narrowed or irregular tube. Also during an HSG a normal tube may spasm and look blocked or narrowed, so talk to your doc about your results. ...Read more

Is HSG fallopian tube test painful?

Is HSG fallopian tube test painful?

Not really: The hsg causes cramps. The discomfort one has can depend on such factors as her pain tolerance as well as who does the procedure and his/her expertise. For example, I perform all hsg's on my own patients and have done so for over 20 years. My techniques give less discomfort, for example, compared to a doctor who only does them on occasion or has only done them for a few years. ...Read more

I have mildly dilated fallopian tube. Can I have a test tube baby?

Yes: If you are unable to get pregnant due to problems with your fallopian tubes, you may be a candidate for in vitro fertilization (test-tube baby). Some of your eggs and your partner's sperm are harvested and meet in the laboratory. A few of the fertilized eggs are then placed back in your body. ...Read more

Do ovulation tests check for the presence of an egg in the fallopian tube?

Do ovulation tests check for the presence of an egg in the fallopian tube?

It's the LH hormone: Ovulation test kits check for the presence of luteinizing hormone (lh). It is usually released in a "surge" by the pituitary gland as the trigger for ovulation. Therefore the testsdo not check for the actual egg but rather are indirect evidence that it was released. ...Read more

What are the symptoms of fallopian tube obstruction? And when is the right time to do the test after 2 years of trying to concieve?

Tubal Blockage: There are no symptoms associated with tubal occlusion, only infertility. Because most occlusions are easily flushed by hysterosalpingogram (hsg), I recommend that the hsg be one of the first tests performed during the evaluation for infertility. ...Read more

I have av 100 degree fever 24 hours after having an HSG test to see if my fallopian tubes were blocked. Is this something to be concerned about?

Maybe: It is not unusual to have a slight fever in response to a procedure. But it can be a sign of infection. If you have cramping, bleeding or the fever gets any higher, you should be seen. No matter what, you should let your doctor know what is going on. Good luck! ...Read more

Swollen fallopian tube. My doctor told me it could be random swelling that will resolve on its own. He didn't do any tests. Is this normal?

How diagnosed?: It is not clear what is meant by the term “swollen tube.” You may be referring to a hydrosalpinx that could have been seen on sonogram. This could be further evaluate by surgical removal, hysterosalpingogram or reevaluation in a few months depending on the clinical circumstances. “Swollen tube” could refer to pelvic inflammatory disorder. If so STD testing & antibiotics are needed ...Read more

My test results show a dialeted Fallopian tube I do not have a STD nor did I ever have one. If I don't want children how will this effect me?

No infection?: If there is no evidence of a residual Fallopian tube infection then this will not affect you going forward. However, your MD must be certain that this is not an infection as chronic salpingitis are like dumpster fires that smolder and flare up when unattended. ...Read more

Hsg test results impression:no spillage of contrast into the pelvis from the otherwise unremarkable-appearing bilateral fallopian tubes. What's it mean?

Not normal: A normal hsg shows free spillage of contrast from both tubes into the peritoneal cavity. No spill means the tubes are blocked somehow. If the tubes are blocked, the egg cannot travel down the tube to be fertilized by sperm and become an embryo (and the woman becoming pregnant). ...Read more

My doctors report on my HSG test read as follows: findings suggesting patent fallopian tube and possible scarring in the pelvis. What does this means.

HSG report: This means that the fallopian tubes are open allowing for egg and sperm to reach each other. But that the shape is a little distorted meaning there could be some scar tissue around the tubes. Scar tissue can be formed by previous surgeries, appendix issues, pelvic infections and endometriosis. ...Read more
