Optional extra - HyCoSy test
If appropriate, we can perform a HyCoSy (Hysterosalpingo-contrast-sonography) test but this is not part of the MOT this is an additional £500. HyCoSy is a non-invasive transvaginal ultrasound technique which assesses the patency of your fallopian tubes, which must be clear of blockages in order to conceive. HyCoSy involves injecting a contrast fluid into the uterine cavity through the cervix, which will indicate on ultrasound if there are any fallopian tube blockages or other changes in the womb such as polyps or fibroids.
Blocked fallopian tubes can be caused by a number of reasons, including infections, previous surgery and scar tissue. Blocked fallopian tubes do not typically show any symptoms and as such most women are unaware of a problem until they have difficulty conceiving.
