Brief Answer:
antibiotics followed by laparoscopy

Detailed Answer:
Dear member,
Thanks for writing.
The main reason in your wife's case is tubal abnormality. Hydrosalphinx is usually due to infection.
For my patients I would suggest Doxycycline 100mg twice a day for 2 weeks along with metronidazole 400 mg thrice a day for a week.Your treating doctor will know about this.
It will be good to assess tubes directly after antibiotics by laparoscopic method. Here by a keyhole in the abdominal wall the uterus and tubes are visualized directly.
Hysterosalphingogram cannot give all information.
I would recommend you to undergo laparoscopic assessment and treatment for fallopian tubes.after which it can be decided whether the tubes are ok or she needs IVF(In vitro fertilisation)
Please write back if you have any questions

Thank you for the answer, what could be the approximate cost for the laparoscopic assessment and treatment for fallopian tubes in XXXXXXX ( Bangalore).

Is it necessary to do the laproscopic assement & treatment even in case we decide to go for IVF directly?

Detailed Answer:
Dear member,
Thanks for writing.
The hydrosalphinx needs to be treated. Even if you are considering IVF.
The hydrosalphinx has a collection of fluid and pus which may lead to inflammation of the tubes and Uterus and may increase chances of IVF antibiotics need to be given.

The laparoscopic evaluation is not requiredif you are going for IVF though most doctors recommend a hysteroscopy before ivf.
The cost depends on different hospitals.
Should be around 40,000-50,000.
