100 patients of infertility in the age group of 18-37 years were taken up for Hysterosalpingography and Diagnostic Laparoscopy at Lalla Dad Hospital Srinagar during the year 2001-2003. 72% patients were of primary infertility and 28% patients were of secondary infertility. Hysterosalpingography was fruitful in detecting uterine and tubal pathology very well but was of no value for diagnosis of ovarian disease, whereas, Laparoscopy was good in detecting tubal and ovarian pathology in detail. Comparing the diagnostic accuracy of the two. Total agreement between the results of the two procedures was seenin 87% cases. Complications encountered were minimal. Where the hospital stay ranged from 1-3 days for laparoscopy, Hysterosalpingography was done as an outdoor procedure.
