Hi!
It appears from this report that there is some scar tissue around the left fallopian tube.
This may have resulted from a previous infection or surgery.
The tube itself seems to be normal.
If you were my patient, I would recommend considering diagnostic/operative laparoscopy to remove scar tissue from around the left tube.  This might very well restore fertility since the tube appears normal.  I would also probably use a barrier such as Interceed in hopes of preventing new scar tissue from forming.

One to two months later, I would repeat the HSG to see how things looked.  If there was still no free spill from the left tube, I would proceed to In Vitro.

Hope this helps!

But how are scar tissue formed? Like me, I have never had any infection except for yeast infection. Could that cause scar tissue? I have been trying to conceive for over 7 months with no luck. I did a progesterone test and the results came back normal and I'm scheduled to do a hsg this saturday.
