Ultrasound examination of fallopian tubes (hycosy)
HyCoSy (Hysterosalpingo-Contrast Sonography) is an ultrasound-controlled intervention to examine the uterine cavity and the fallopian tubes. Small but very significant changes in the uterine cavity (eg polyps that act as a "natural coil") are much better observed with this method than with HSG - as with HSG, it is possible to raise suspicion of fallopian tubes, but, unlike from HSG, no radiation.
A very thin catheter is inserted into the uterus through which a sterile saline solution is heated, heated to body temperature. Under the control of ultrasound, fluid flow through the uterine cavity, fallopian tubes and discharge from the fallopian tubes is monitored. It is recommended for women under 35 who did not become pregnant after one year of regular sexual intercourse, as well as for women over 35 who did not remain pregnant after six months of regular sexual intercourse. It is usually performed from 7 to 10 p.m. days counting from the first day of the last menstrual period (during this period the woman is certainly not pregnant).
