Hi there.

I am considering going for AI but a friend of mine told me that I would need to do an HSG first. Is this true and necessary?

Dear New

It is extremely important to establish whether the fallopian tubes are patent or not and this can be confirmed by an hsg or alternately by a laparoscope. The HSG is less invasive and therefore is often the first step.
