Brief Answer: NO NEED FOR HSG. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing to us with your health concern. Your laparoscopy shows that both fallopian tubes were open at the time of the procedure. So I do not think HSG is required. You can definitely go for IUI. If 3 - 6 cycles of IUI fail despite good ovarian response and tolerable sperm count, then ICSI is the next option. I do not see any need for HSG. If your doctor insists, you cannot do both in the same cycle. First HSG would be done, and Clomid the next cycle. All the best. Please feel free to discuss further.
