Brief Answer:
The tubes can open up due to the test.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
HSG itself can open a blocked tube due to the injection of the XXXXXXX that pushes through the tubes. The second report is more likely to be true. You can get a repeat test done to confirm the findings.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

As you said if incase the third time report says tubes are blocked then which report is can a blocked tubes open during HSG test.if blocked people say to do laparoscopy.can you guide me on this.

Brief Answer:
Details below.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing again.
Out of three tests of HSG if two say the tubes are blocked then it is likely that the tubes are blocked. A false negative test is more likely to happen in HSG due to a faulty technique rather than a false positive test. So it is more likely that the tubes are patent. The pressure with which the XXXXXXX is injected inside can open a small blockage in the tube. In case there is a severe scarring then only laparoscopic surgery is needed.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
