Diagnosis of blocked fallopian tubes
Since this condition is generally asymptomatic, detection takes place only when getting pregnant becomes difficult
The first investigation that would suggest tubal problem is HSG. Here a dye is introduced into cervix using a tiny tube, the dye then travels to the uterus and colors the area wherever it goes. If it spreads through the uterus and the tubes then everything is normal, if not, then the blockage is suspected.
Confirmatory test is diagnostic hysterolap because HSG sometimes gives false results.
