How Do you Know If Fallopian Tubes are Blocked?

The following tests are used to diagnose blocked fallopian tubes:

Hysterosalpingography (HSG)

Hysterosalpingography is an X-ray procedure that uses a dye to determine whether the fallopian tubes are blocked.


Laparoscopy is a surgical procedure that involves making a small incision in the abdomen and inserting a thin tube with a camera attached.


In this hysteroscope, a long thin, tube-like, and hollow viewing instrument is inserted into the uterus through the vagina.

Blood Test

Sometimes, an elevated level of a hormone called follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) can indicate that the fallopian tubes are blocked.


In some cases, an ultrasound can be used to detect a blockage in the fallopian tubes. This is done by using high-frequency sound waves to create images of the reproductive organs, including the fallopian tubes.

Saline Infusion Sono Hysterography

This is a procedure that involves injecting saline into the uterus, and then using an ultrasound to check for any abnormalities.
