INFERTILITY
I underwent a test to find out if my tubes are blocked. This involved injection of a dye into my uterus through the vagina. What is this test called. Is it possible to become fertile after the test has been done. My doctor told me my tubes are not blocked. Is it possible to fall pregnant. Please advise. I have not started on any fertility treatment but my gynae had mentioned that he will put me on this.

It is called an HSG. As the test shows that your tubes are not blocked, there could be other reasons for not falling pregnant, such as not ovulating or a low sperm count in your partner.
