1) It is very unfortunate to hear that you have blockage of fallopian tubes from HSG.
2) You need further investigation to determine the reason of blockage.
3) I agree with your doctor that the next step of investigation is laparascopic surgery.
4) The result of HSG is not 100% reliable. Sometimes, the dye that used in HSG to flush the fallopian tubes could not flow through the tubes due to muscle constriction of the fallopian tubes. In this situation, your tubes are perfectly normal and the laparoscopic surgery will double confirmed this situation.
5) Laparoscopic surgery will further investigate for the underlying reason of blockage and treat accordingly.
6) Just like any other surgery, laparoscopy carries a small risk of complications, such as bowel injury, bladder injury and wound infection. However, the risk of complication is actually low.
7) If laparoscopy confirmed blockage of both tubes, you need to undergo test tube baby treatment if you keen to pregnant.
