Brief Answer:
You are having fimbrial block.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,

Thanks for trusting hcm about your health care.
I can understand your concerns.
I have gone through your hsg report and it is showing delayed and localized spillage in both tubes that means your tubes are blocked at fimbrial end.
If it is blocked at fimbrial ends than there is a possibility of inflammation.
If it is due to inflammation than it should be treated by antibiotics otherwise there is no medical therapy to treat fimbrial block.
So you should consult your treating doctor for the same.
Hope it is useful, feel free to ask more questions.
Good luck.
Regards

Brief Answer:
IVF is the treatment.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX,
I can understand your concerns.
When fimbrial end is blocked than there is no medical treatment effective.
Even there is no successful surgical procedure to open the ends.
So the best way to concieve is through IVF( in vitro fertilization), a artificial method of conception.
In this method your egg and your husband sperm fertilized artificially and than embryo implant inside the uterus.
For this you have to consult an infertility specialists and it is successful after 2-3 sitting but it is a costly procedure.
Hope it is useful.
Good luck.
Regards
