Our expert says:
The most highly recommended evaluation is that done via laparoscopy. The other alternative is through an X-ray called an HSG (histosalpingogram) and a 3rd option is via ultrasound perturbation. Unfortunately the laparoscopy involves a general anaesthetic and is done in an operating theatre but is certainly the most accurate reflection of the fallopian tubes status. For patients unable to afford this, the other alternatives are suitable and in my opinion the X-ray (HSG) is far more reliable than the ultrasound method.
