They may or may not be able to clear out the tubes, depending on why they are blocked and how severly. The tubes are very thin, very fine and very delicate. If the problem is adhesions from endo then they may be able to do something, but if they are blocked because of scar tissue there is usually not too much they can do.

Like I said, along the pain pill I would recommend a muscle relaxer so that you have the best possible chance of not going into spasm.

FYI....I've had 3 HSG's and each one of them hurt like the devil himself. I can't understand how some women say it doesn't hurt......they must have cervix's made of steel! I sure wish I did cause after the first one just the thought of having it done again probably made me go into spasm.
I just had an HSG Monday, and I know some of you will probably hate me for this, but I had not one tiny bit of pain, and I even have a blockage! I was shocked as well, believe me. I took a Valium (10mg) and 800mg motrin about 30 minutes before the procedure. When we went in the RE numbed my cervix with a shot (which I didn't even feel) before using the cervical clamp, and he must have been very gently because I never felt the dye going in, no pressure, nada. I saw it on screen, but otherwise would have had no idea it was happening.

Afterwards I did have some BAD cramping - menstrual style - for which I took a Vicodin and they went away. All in all, it was not bad (well, other than the results), esp. compared to an endo. biopsy I had one time that has scarred me for life, I swear.

As far as spasms showing tubal blockages, I have read that really only happens right at the entrance to the uterus, and that if the blockage is well up into the tubes near the ovary, it is more likely to be scar tissue from an infection or endo.

Good luck!
