Our expert says:
There are two ways of checking the tubes. One is an HSG, where dye is injected through the tubes and an X-ray taken to see if it comes out the other end. The other is a laparoscopy, a small operation where a telescope is inserted into your abdomen. The tubes are then directly visualised and dye is once again injected and it can be seen whether it spills out the other end. If your tubes are blocked, depending on the severity, either tubal surgery can be done or IVF.
