A sonohysterogram is an imaging test used to examine the uterus. It is performed by inserting fluids into the uterus through the cervix to allow the uterine lining to be examined. As opposed to a routine ultrasound, sonohysterograms enable our doctors to better understand the structures that need examining.
There are several reasons that a doctor may recommend you undergo this type of imaging test. At Women for Women Obstetrics and Gynecology, we want patients to feel comfortable coming to us for this procedure. We are well versed in this area and will use this test to find the desired results. There are various things that a sonohysterogram can test for, including the below:
As previously stated, our team wants women who need a sonohysterogram to be as comfortable as possible when coming in for this type of examination. We want to break down what you can expect to take place during one to help with this. The first step will be administering a pregnancy test as you shouldn’t undergo this test if you are pregnant. Once this is done, the three main parts of this examination can take place, including the below:
The recovery process for this procedure is a relatively simple one. Most patients will be able to return to their daily activities immediately after its completion. There are usually no adverse side effects. However, it’s normal to experience slight discomfort for a few days. Any light bleeding that is experienced will likely stop within a few days.
At Women for Women Obstetrics and Gynecology, our primary goal is to keep women healthy and safe. We understand the importance of our services, which is why we work diligently to provide the best quality of care for all of our patients.
