Can you get your tubes check to make sure everything is ok?

In brief: Hysterosalpingogram

There is an xray called a hysterosalpingogram (hsg) which can be done to see if the tubes are open.
A small catheter is inserted into the uterus and a dye is injected that will show up on the xray. If the dye passes through then you will know the tubes are open.

The HSG is great for tubes but the Saline-Infusion-Songram is probably better for the uterine cavity. Both the uterus and the tubes are critical t have good fertility. Both tests can be performed without pain despite what you might read on the Internet.

In brief: Tubal Studies

Blockage of the fallopian tubes is a cause of female infertility.
Dye can be pushed through the tubes and spillage observed in x rays (hystero-salpingo-gram). Alternatively, if a laparoscopy is indicated for pain or infertility, a blue dye can be injected through the uterus and the spillage seen by the surgeon as it exits the tubes inside the pelvis.
