What is the technique used in Hysterosonosalpingography?
This procedure consists of introducing a fine probe through the cervix, and then injecting physiological saline, this allows us to see inside the uterine cavity and the subsequent flow of the liquid through the fallopian tubes.
It is done following menstruation but before ovulation, at around day 11-12 of the cycle. We usually recommend antibiotic prophylaxis prior to the procedure.
The examination is quick and is carried out in the surgery. After the test, you may feel some discomfort similar to menstrual pain which can be relieved with an anti-inflammatory medication
