We had difficulty TTC as well and that is often one of the first tests they send you for.  I don't know if it necessarily increases your chances of concieving rather it allow the dr.'s to see if you have a blocked tube, fibroids, etc.  It is my understanding that it helps them rule out potential problems of infertility.  Wish you the best!

HSG is very helpful for some people. There is generally a 40% chance of conveiving after having this done. The theory is that it clears out the tubes and makes it easier for the egg to travel. It's also a good first test in infertility to see if there are any tubal issues. Either way, it was a good thing to do.  Good luck

It is a test that tells if you have good eggs... And enough. And you also ask for a implantation faliure panel.... i am going to get that test done. it checks to see if a female is implanting late and that could be why a woman has miscarriages and also hard getting pregnant... GOOD LUCk
