During the procedure, the Gynecologist places a speculum into the vagina and passes a small catheter into the uterus. Then, they inject a liquid contrast agent and examine the uterine cavity on a nearby monitor using an X-ray camera.
After obtaining the picture of the uterus and fallopian-tube-picture, they reach to a conclusion if there is a blockage or not. Doctor will thread a smaller catheter through the first catheter and then into the fallopian tube to clear the blockage. In more than 90% of the cases, surgeons can reopen at least one blocked fallopian tube and restore normal function. Cramping and mild bleeding is a common symptom that lasts for around 3 days.
