Fallopian Tubes

Hysterosalpingogram (HSG):  This is a test to check whether or not the fallopian tubes are open.

Laparoscopy:  This is a day surgery that could be performed to evaluate the pelvis for conditions such as endometriosis and/or adhesions, which can affect fertility; the fallopian tubes can be checked during the surgery as well.


HSG:  Checks the uterine cavity (the space where an embryo would potentially implant and grow) – this test is performed by a radiologist in a radiology suite.  It involves injection of iodine contrast dye through a catheter and into the uterus to see whether or not the shape of the uterine cavity is normal.  The test is checking for the presence or absence of growths such as fibroids and endometrial polyps as well as abnormalities such as scar tissue within the uterine cavity.  In addition, this test can help diagnose a uterus that has a septum in the uterine cavity or a uterus that is heart-shaped (also known as bicornuate).

Saline infusion sonogram (SIS):  This is another test can check the uterine cavity.  It involves a pelvic ultrasound in the office and injection of a small amount of saline into the uterine cavity to see whether or not the shape of the uterine cavity is normal.
