HyCoSy (Hysterosalpingo-contrast-sonography) is a fertility test offered by our sonography team at our state-of-the-art clinic. It is a non-invasive transvaginal ultrasound technique that assesses the patency of your fallopian tubes, which must be clear of blockages in order to conceive.
Why have a HyCoSy test?
If you are having trouble trying to conceive it is advisable to have a number of fertility checks, we call this our fertility assessment. For women, this involves an AMH blood test, pelvic ultrasound scan, antral follicle count, and a general health check (including your BMI).
Sometimes, following these tests, it is necessary to carry out further investigations, including the HyCoSy tubal patency test.
HyCoSy tests, plus a consultation with a fertility specialist, will help you make informed decisions and give you useful advice about how best to conceive.
