Blocked tube vs. spasm?


[quote=natenang654][SIZE=3]Thanks, Cathie! I googled and searched the 'net but hadn’t found this info![/SIZE]

[SIZE=3]Kimmie22 - since my RE thought it was a spasm, we proceeded to the lap to rule out any other issues - we were also concerned about endo. I had the lap last Thursday - he found mild endo and removed a cyst from my right tube! Have you had a lap yet??? It wasn’t the most pleasant experience - but I maybe you should talk to your RE to see if this might be an option for you. If you read Cathie’s post, the HSG is not conclusive - so a lap might be helpful to you too![/SIZE]

Wow I may do that. I am on hold now because they found out I tested positive for the cystic fibrosis gene so my husband is being tested before we do anything else. Thanks so much for the information!

My right tube was blocked near the uterus as well. It was blocked in the same place on laparoscopy so I guess it’s a true blockage. The HSG was painful!


[quote=natenang654]On HSG it appeared my rt tube was blocked. RE did [U]not[/U] do the procedure (it was at a local hospital) - so from a dictated report about the findings and the location of the blockage - he feels that is was a spasm and not a blockage that didn’t allow the dye through the tube.

RE says that the uterus is basically a muscle and that spasms happen often (??) during this procedure. For my results and location of the blockage, he gave a ~90% chance that it was a spasm.
Anyone else heard of this???[/quote]

hi, ive just had the hsg done and the doc said my right tube was either blocked or had gone into a spasm when the dye went in, ive now gotta go for a lap/dye and am realy worried, i suppose il just have to be patient!


I just had my HSG done this morning and after having the doctor have to try to shove the speculum in 3 or 4 times until she found my cervix, she had to try to get the cervical cath in twice before it got in. After she got it in, she started filling my uterus up with dye, and that popped out my cath again, so she put it back in again and inserted more dye. The cath popped out again, so she said she wasn’t putting me in any more pain, so I stopped. She said that it looked like I have a bifurcated uterus (heart shaped) and that the dye would fill up the uterus and not go into the tubes at all. She’s going to talk to an infertility specialist before she tells me for sure what’s going on. Anyone else have any of these issues???


While I am new to this, but I have both of my tubes blocked and they are doing something like the HSG but they said something like a [FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]catheter [FONT=‘Times New Roman’]procedure. I have no clue what that is about. I have never heard anything about it. All of this stuff is totally new to me. [/FONT][/SIZE][/FONT]


Cystic Fibrosis and trying to have a baby

[FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]Okay let’s start from the beginning; I have Cystic Fibrosis and my husband and I are trying to have a baby. I had an HSG done on July 2, 2008 and both tubes are blocked. I am having a procedure done on August 4, 2008 to try to unblock my tubes. They said it is like the HSG but with a catheter thing I have not clue what they are taking about and I have never heard of this procedure. Does anyone know about this procedure? HELP:pray: [/SIZE][/FONT]
