Sono-HSG is a test in the diagnosis of obstruction of the fallopian tubes, a common cause of infertility. This method involves the application of a contrast agent to the uterine cavity and enables the detection of developmental changes of the uterus, fallopian tubes and inflammatory changes and intrauterine adhesions under ultrasound guidance. The administered contrast agent first gradually fills the uterine cavity and the tube, and then enters the peritoneal cavity. The procedure is performed in a short intravenous anesthesia, and its duration is about 5-10 minutes. When performing sono-HSG, no periungural adhesions or endometriosis can not be detected, which may also be the cause of infertility. These diseases, on the other hand, can be visualized and removed during laparoscopy.
How to prepare for surgery?
The treatment is preceded by a consultation visit. Before the procedure, the following tests should be performed (tests can be performed at our Clinic)
- blood group
- morphology, electrolytes, APTT
- vaginal culture
- partner sperm result
Two weeks before the planned treatment, you must not take the following medicines: aspirin or its derivatives (eg Acard, Aspirin, Calcipirine, Polocard), Vit.E and antitussive and anti-influenza drugs. These measures adversely affect the prolongation of bleeding during surgery.
You should limit smoking to 3-4 cigarettes a day for 3 days before surgery.
The operator should be informed about the infection, if any, within 2 weeks before the planned surgery.
6 hours should be left on an empty stomach (without food or drink) before surgery.
After the surgery and several hours of hospitalization, the patient is discharged home. The control visit at the Clinic should take place after approx. 7 days. The patient may experience persistent pain after the treatment, which is alleviated both by over-the-counter painkillers and ketonal. There may be slight spotting from the noble family.
