In brief: Are tubes open?
The test to check if the tubes are open is called a hysterosalpingogram (hsg for short).
It is a type of x-ray. A doctor puts a speculum in the vagina, inserts a catheter in the cervix, and then squirts dye in the uterus. Then they watch the dye leak out of the tubes by x-ray. It is very crampy!
