HyCoSy (Hysterosalpingo-contrast-sonography)HyCoSy, or in other words ultrasound hysterosalpingography, is a safe and reliable ultrasound procedure used to visualize the uterine cavity and the Fallopian tubes. The examination proves useful in the investigation of infertility causes since it allows the assessment of tubal patency and identification of potential adhesions or myomas in the uterine cavity.
Patients with a low pain tolerance can take 2 tablets of No spa (period pain reliever) before the test. Intramuscular injection of Ketonal is another option offered by the Clinic. The patients who choose this form of pain control are expected to inform the Registration staff of their decision in advance and arrive at the Clinic 1 hour before the scheduled appointment time.
The entire procedure lasts approximately 15 minutes.
Spotting, leakage of contrast material out of the vagina and discomfort in the abdominal area may occur after the examination.
