Does an sis test help clear out tubes like an HSG test does?

Not why done!: Neither test is primarily done to, "clear out the tubes". The hsg is done to evaluate the tubes for patency, strictures, scarring, dilatation, etc. Tubes that are otherwise normal appearing but with mucous plugs may be cleared by the hsg. The sis may have similar results but if there are other tubal issues there could then be increased risk of ectopic implantation. ...Read more
