HSG report reads defect in endometrial cavity. Can I not get pregnant? Do I need laproscopy?

Hi, I am 36 years old with normal ovaries and uterus cavity report also shows everything normal. My HSG report - Uterus evidence of filling defect noted in the endometrial cavity in the mid uterine segment. Both fallopian tubes well delineated with dye with minimal peritoneal spillage. What does this mean? Can t I get pregnant naturally? Do I need to go through laproscopy to remove the polyp ? If I get pregnant naturally, will I be able to deliver without major issues?

Hello and welcome to HCM,
I am Dr Nilajkumar a consultant gynecologist and I will be helping you in your queries.

The filling defect may be a polyp, a septum or a partial septum. Also the tubes are showing minimal spillage indicating that there is some hinderance in flow.

I suggest that you have a laproscopy and hysteroscopy procedure to see for the tubes and uterine cavity. Any defects can be then corrected improving chances of pregnancy.

The chances of natural conception cannot be commented in such cases as defects are found. Also what will happen during pregnancy and labor is also unpredictable and will depend upon what the filling defect is. If it is a septum then preterm labor and retained placenta after delivery may be possible. However it all depends upon what the defect is.

Do not worry, these are not uncommon and can be corrected.
Thanks for using HCM.
Feel free to ask any more queries.
Have a good day.
