Pelvic ultrasound scans are performed to assess the female reproductive organs. Your consultant will discuss any pathology (abnormal scan findings) that is noted following your scan.
A series of scans may be performed to monitor follicle development (small fluid filled sacs within each ovary where the eggs mature), particularly during the stimulation phase of your treatment.
When you become pregnant, we offer scans up to 12 weeks of pregnancy. The first scan at 4 weeks post transfer is used to confirm pregnancy, with a second scan usually offered at week 6 or 7.
The HyCoSy is a procedure to test the patency of the fallopian tubes.
A small catheter is introduced into the neck of the womb and an ultrasound probe is then placed in the vagina. A dye is injected into the womb and its flow into the fallopian tubes is observed to check normal function.
A 3D SIS is an investigation which is performed to look for any problems with the structure and function of the womb.
A small catheter is introduced through the neck of the womb followed by distension of the uterine cavity. 3-dimensional images of the uterine cavity are taken by ultrasound and assessed by your doctor.
