This is an x-ray examination of the womb and fallopian tubes and involves injecting a dye through the cervix into the womb. It does not usually require a general anaesthetic, but there may be associated discomfort.

 

Laparoscopy and dye examination

This involves admission to hospital and is performed under a general anaesthetic. A small incision is made in the abdomen and a needle inserted. Gas is passed through the needle to distend the abdomen then a telescope called a laparoscope is inserted into the abdomen. The womb, tubes and ovaries are then inspected. Dye is passed through the cervix into the womb and the tubes can be observed directly to see whether they are damaged or not.
