    Default Does a HyCoSy increase chances of pregnancy?

    We have heard that after a HyCoSy test, people usually get pregnant within about 3 cycles. Is this true or just an old wives tale?

    Of course the main reason for the test is to check for blockage but is there really an added 'bonus' (so to speak) that this test also helps clear the tubes (due to the levovist contrast agent)?



    Plus about how much does it cost? We might be going with Ultrasound Care in Sydney.

    Thanks.

    Well the rumour is out there that it does. I had mine done at the same time as my lap and i did fall pg the very next cycle. Although for me it ended in a m/c it was still a pregnancy and the closest we have ever got. Fingers crossed for you both

    I guess it's true, depending on the cause of the infertility.

    I had one... but with me being totally anovulatory due to PCOS, and immune system that attacks my babies and DH having a triple defect with his sperm, there's no way on earth a hy-co-sy would help us get pregnant!

    It can clear minor blockages in the tubes, though. So if that's the only thing that's stopping you conceiving, then yes, it may just help.

    I recall mine costing around $300 or so, there is a medicare rebate, but we were well over the safety net threshold at the time (IVF treatments), so I'm not sure how much the actual rebate is.

    Thank you for all your replies.

    We are now finally scheduled for a tubal patency test in Jan '08.

    Hope it does clear up minor blockages as the rumour goes. Something to try before even considering a laparoscopy - long story - FS issues.
