What is Hysterosalpingo-Contrast-Sonography (Hycosy) ?

Hycosy, short for Hysterosalpingo-Contrast-Sonography, is a medical imaging procedure used to assess the patency (openness) of the fallopian tubes and the shape of the uterine cavity in women. It is often performed as part of fertility evaluation or to investigate the cause of infertility, recurrent miscarriages, or pelvic pain. Hycosy combines elements of hysterosalpingography (HSG) and transvaginal ultrasound to provide detailed information about the female reproductive organs.

Here's how the Hycosy procedure typically works:

How does it help ?

Hycosy, or Hysterosalpingo-Contrast-Sonography, helps in several ways when assessing female reproductive health, particularly for women who are experiencing fertility issues or other gynecological concerns:

In summary, Hycosy is a valuable diagnostic tool that aids in the evaluation of the female reproductive system, particularly the fallopian tubes and uterine cavity. By providing detailed information about these structures, it helps healthcare providers diagnose and address issues that may be contributing to fertility problems or other gynecological conditions, ultimately assisting women in their journey toward better reproductive health and fertility.

Hycosy is considered a safe and less invasive alternative to traditional hysterosalpingography (HSG), which uses X-rays for imaging. It provides valuable information about the condition of the fallopian tubes and uterine cavity, helping doctors diagnose issues that may affect fertility or reproductive health.

It's important to discuss the procedure, its potential risks, and any specific instructions with your doctor before undergoing Hycosy, especially if you are planning to use it as part of a fertility evaluation or treatment plan.
