What does this HSG test result indicate?

Hi I just received my HSG result and this is what it reads. There are multiple linear filling defects in the uterine cavity likely due to uterine synechae or recent instrumentation. The left Fallopian tube is partly outlined but there is no intraperitoneal spillage of contrast medium ipsilaterally. The right Fallopian tube is not demonstrated and there is no intraperitoneal spillage of contrast medium,General Impression Bilateral tubal blockage? Spasm. Please what does this mean

Hi there, I have understood your concern.

HSG - hysterosalpingography, is a test to know about the patency of fallopian tubes and outline of the uterine cavity.

As per your reports, there is some filling defect in the uterine cavity. It can be due to adhesions or bands in the uterine cavity. It can be due to infection or some surgical procedures like currette.
Also, both the fallopian tubes seem to be blocked and do not have patent lumen.

I will suggest you to get laparoscopy and hysteroscopy done. If you are planning for pregnancy, this procedure will be of help.

Thanks.
Dr. Purushottam Neurgaonkar.
