The next step in diagnosing the possible causes of secondary sterility is to check the anatomy of the uterusthe and ovarian tubes. This is done using a procedure called, "Hystero-salpingo-graphy (HSG)" during which a doctor analyzes the anatomy and passage of the uterus and tubes. It is a contrast X-ray procedure. Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) can block the ovarian tubes. The final diagnostic procedure you can request is laparoscopy . Perhaps âin vitroâ fertilization can help you and your partner conceive.
