Do i need to repeat my HSG so that i can re-check if my right tube is now unblocked? i just did the HSG last june saying that my right tube is proximal blockage(no spill) but really confused when my OB told me that my right tube looks healthy when she visualized it during my LAP due to my left tubal pregnancy... I am so worried after removing my left tube i keep on thinking if i can conceive without the help of IVF coz we really cannot afford it... is LAP can visualized if your fallopian in unblocked without dying it? i want to believe in what my OB said that my right tube is healthy but I am doubting coz of what my HSG result last june... help me please will die on thinking if I convieve naturally my hubby and I really want to have a baby since I am 34 years old now...

Hi Anonymous and thank you for providing additional information about your initial Ask on the site.

Your physician did not need to use a dye to correctly perform the laparoscopy, a surgery that uses a thin, lighted tube put through an incision in the belly to look at your fallopian tubes. Physicians using this technique have special training and expertise in microsurgery techniques and/or laparoscopy, and often perform immediate procedures to unblock the fallopian tubes or perform other procedures to help a woman conceive. 

If it would give you more peace of mind to repeat the hysterosalpingogram (HSG) then by all means do so.

Hope that helps,

hi pam,
thank you for replying really appreciate it. My medical report saying this:
patient admitted in ward for surgery, prepared for laparoscopic left salpingectomy. Adnexal complex mass.
Finding- Hemoperitonium found, left tube identified tried for salpingostomy but due to unhealthy tube with twisting could not possible, salpingectomy done, right tube looks healthy.
what is she mean that my right tube is healthy? is that mean that
i can still concieve naturally? because all i knew is that my right tube was blocked according to HSG last june.

Hi Anonymous - My suggestion is that you ask the doctor directly what she meant by saying "the right tube looks healthy." She may be saying there were no signs of disease. That's very different from saying that she feels you can conceive. You really need to ask her what she meant to know what she meant. You and I can only guess at this point, which is very frustrating. Good luck! Pam
