Hi XXXXXX,
Thanks for writing in to us.

I have read through your query in detail.
Please find my observations below.

1. HSG is hysterosalpingograpny and is study of uterus and tubes. This is done ot know of any structural problem in uterus and tubes that is not allowing pregnancy to happen and is a common test when evaluating female infertility.

2. In your HSG report
(i) Uterus is normal in shape and appearance.
(ii) Right side tube is seen alone its extent however there is a nlock seen at the end. This is described as "spill not seen".
(iii) Left tube is visualized and shows normal appearance with spill seen at the end.

3. In conclusion, the uterus and left tube are normal. There might be a possible block in the right tube at the end.

Hope this answers your question. Please feel free to correct any oversight in my interpretation of your problems and discuss them in detail as per your requirements.

Hope your query is answered.
