Sonohysterography

Sonohysterography is a procedure in which sterile fluid is injected through the cervix into the uterus, and an ultrasound is used to make images of the uterine cavity.  The fluid shows more detail of the inside of the uterus than when ultrasound is used alone.  It may be used to find the underlying cause of many problems, including abnormal uterine bleeding, infertility, and repeated pregnancy loss.

The procedure is scheduled when you are not on your menstrual cycle.  It is not done if you are or could be pregnant.  You may be given a urine test to rule out pregnancy.  The procedure is also not done if you have a pelvic infection or recent history of pelvic inflammatory disease.

Depending on your medical history, the doctors at Advanced OB/GYN will discuss with you if a sonohysterography may be helpful.
