Hello there we understand your concern and enthusiasm. But then you see this test is done for checking of the patency of the tube that whichnis attached to the uterus. These tubes help in carrying of ovum to uterus. If that is blocked in your wife's case then she not have a chance of getting pregnant. And your doctor is doing the same. And more over it is dine under universal standard of sterility. So there is no need of you to worry about and just trust your doctor. Thank you
