Hi, I am trying to conceive got a HSG exam done on Oct 22. I have an air travel coming up on Nov. 6 to SFO. It is a direct flight and I will be back on Nov. 12. I am going to see family so it is not a stressful trip. Can I travel? I have been trying to conceive for the last 2 years. I am not sure whether to cancel the trip or to go because I am not sure whether I will conceive or not. Please advice.

Hello. Can you please help me. I had anot exam and am trying to have a baby. My post-procedure diagnosis says Fallopian tubes are patent bilaterally. Findings say, contrast opacifies the uterus and fallopian tubes to the level of the isthmus.No peritoneal spillage of contrast is seen. The interstitial and isthmic portions of the Fallopian tubes are distended. No uterine anomalies are seen. It then continues on to say impression, findings suggestive of bilateral fallopian tube occlusion at isthmus. No uterine anomalies are seen. Please help
