Our expert says:
The option of a laparoscopy is certainly a good recommendation as certain conditions such as endometriosis can best only be diagnosed through this means. This applies in particular to early stages of the disease and its effect on infertility cannot be over stated. However if the indication for the laparoscopy is simply to confirm tubal patency then a simple x-ray or an HSG maybe more than sufficient. In view of your age, perhaps a laparoscopy should still be seriously considered.
