What is HyCoSy?
HyCoSy is a special ultrasound scan (known as hysterosalpingo-contrast-sonography) during which a contrast medium is inserted in the uterus through the cervix and we can then see if the contrast medium fills the tubes and comes out at the other end.
What are the benefits of HyCoSy?
This examination of the fallopian tubes allows us to see if there is a blockage or any problems that may be affecting pregnancy.
HyCoSy is a very well tolerated procedure and it will give a result straight away. It is very important to perform it during the first part of your cycle (before ovulation) to avoid displacing a potential pregnancy.
Are there any risks?
There may be a small chance of a pelvic infection following the test but antibiotics will lower this risk of infection. Occasionally the test may cause some light bleeding but this should settle after a day or two.
