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.

What does it mean "the left fallopian tube is patent. However it demonstrates contained spillage of contrast"?

Tube open, : & some of the liquid (which absorbs X-rays; i.e. contrast) which exited the egg entry end of the tube remained within a limited "contained" space of the abdominal cavity instead of more diffusely spreading into a larger space.

I respect it but i doubt you'll find a mechanism for this butter-based herbal mix. You'll need to decide whether it's worked, or is a placebo. But in any case, i hope you get what you want -- good luck. ...Read more
