One of the routine tests carried out in the diagnostics of infertility causes is the overall examination of the uterine cavity and the tubes patency. Poland is the first country in Europe where this advanced and non-invasive diagnostic procedure based on the SonoFlow device is available.

Every woman who turned 20 should regularly visit a gynaecologist and take the recommended screening tests. In the case of infertility, one of the basic tests is the examination of the fallopian tubes patency and of the uterine cavity for the presence of adhesions which may be an obstacle to getting pregnant. Unfortunately, the often complicated procedure and a need to stay in the hospital overnight discourages many women from taking necessary diagnostic tests e.g. to detect the presence of polyps. Therefore, contemporary medicine, in addition to a continuous focus on quality improvement, also attempts to simplify all procedures.

Medicover is the first place in Europe which offers  sonohysterosalpingography, a procedure to evaluate the uterine cavity and the patency of the fallopian tubes. This advanced and non-invasive method of conducting the examination using the SonoFlow device also allows to detect the presence of polyps and fibroids which can someone be mistaken for blood clots and presents an alternative to radiological hysterosalpingography.

The proposed method is a simple, non-invasive and painless test and, what’s most important, it can be carried out during a visit to the gynaecologist who has an ultrasound machine in the office. The examination does not require prior administration of any anaesthetics, pain killers or contrast agents, so the patient does not need to be hospitalised and receives the test results immediately upon completion of the procedure.

A great advantage of this test is its non-invasive nature. The small-diameter catheter inserted into the uterine cervix does not cause any injury to the internal reproductive organs. It is also safe as the patient does not have to be sedated and the only substance introduced inside the body is the totally harmless saline solution.

The examination does not require anaesthesia or hospitalisation. Due to its non-invasive nature, the patient will have no cars left, as in the case of a laparoscopic procedure.

“With the most recent advances in medicine, physicians can offer less and less invasive examinations which can be carried out quickly, in the doctor’s office. They not only make our work more efficient but also improve the quality of medical care for our patients. The SonoFlow test is a 21st century solution which saves the precious time of both the patient and the doctor.

It is important to schedule the test in the first half of the menstrual cycle, after the period. The patient should also have a normal result of a pap smear test which cannot be older than 30 days. Currently, SonoFlow examinations are offered in three cities of Poland:
  1. Katowice (MC Chorzowska and MC Graniczna)
  2. Kraków (MC Podgórska and MC Bora Komorowskiego)
  3. Wrocław (MC Globis and MC Strzegomska)
