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

Just has a laparoscopy and dye test done I was told both tubes r blocked can I have them unblocked the surgeon said there was nothinv I could havedone?
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

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
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

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

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

HSG report: This means that the fallopian tubes are open allowing for egg and sperm to reach each other.
