hystersalpingogram misdiagnosis??

Hi, I'm 28 with two boys, almost 6 and 7. I, regretfully, had a tubal ligation done right after I delivered my second son. (I was 22, with two kids a year and 4 days apart, and panicked.) Now that my boys are in school I've been looking at having another baby. I just had a hystersalpingogram done a couple of weeks ago and was excited when the technician told me that she couldn't tell me either way if they were still blocked or not because there was some spillage and to use contraception until I heard back. the doctor called back and said that my tubes were blocked. However, I was researching the procedure and saw pictures of it with open tubes vs. blocked tubes... the tech showed me my pictures and they look EXACTLY like the "open tube picture". I also had a miscarriage about 2.5 years ago. And I can't explain it, but I just have this feeling that my tubes have grown back. (because I know better than a doctor right? LOL) Anyways... is there any way that the doctor who read my images was wrong??

If you had a miscarriage 2 1/2 years ago, then yes, I would assume your tubes (or at least one) is open. Did you tell the doctor about the miscarriage?

Yes, the doctor knows about my miscarriage.
