What does my HSG report indicate?

Hi, I had my HSG done today and it say the outline uterine cavity and cervical canal are normal . The left tube is outline with evidence of intra peritoneal free spillage of contrast medium on the left. The right tube is not outlined and there is no evidence intra peritoneal spillage of contrast medium to the right. Please what does that mean?

Hi,
Thanks for posting in HCM.
I understand your concern.
The following conclusions can be drawn based on the HSG report you have furnished.
Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) is an investigation that looks at the inside of the uterus & Fallopian tubes and the area around them. It is mainly done to know the weather the Fallopian tubes are patent or not.
1. Outline of uterine cavity and cervical canal are normal, which means that there are no lesions disturbing the lining of the uterine and cervical cavity.
2. Left Fallopian tube is showing the intra-peritoneal free spillage of contrast medium with proper outline, stating that the Fallopian tube is patent on the left side.
3. Right Fallopian tube is not outlined and there is no evidence of intra-peritoneal spillage of contrast material suggests that there is a blockage of Fallopian tube on the right side.
Hence, it could be inferred that uterus and cervix are normal with patent Fallopian tube on the left side.
Hope the information provided would be helpful.
All the best.
