Aquascanning and fallopian tube examination

"At Klinikk Hausken, you can examine whether you have a normal opening through the fallopian tubes. The examination is necessary for hormone-stimulated insemination."

To achieve pregnancy, whether through intercourse or insemination, there must be an opening in at least one of the fallopian tubes.

If there is no opening, eggs and sperm can not meet, and fertilisation cannot occur. With reduced passage in the fallopian tubes, there will be an increased risk of pregnancy outside the uterus. Therefore, we recommend that you check if your fallopian tubes are open. The examination is a prerequisite if you want hormone-stimulated insemination. If both fallopian tubes are blocked, IVF treatment is the only way to get pregnant.

Most women have open fallopian tubes, but if you have a history of abdominal inflammation with chlamydia, appendicitis, endometriosis or other suspected diseases or damage to the fallopian tubes, there is an increased risk of narrow or clogged fallopian tubes. We would like to point out that asymptomatic inflammation of the abdomen with chlamydia can occur.

Here at Klinikk Hausken you can be examined if you have a normal opening through the fallopian tubes.

The examination is performed in the period after menstrual bleeding is finished and before the expected time for ovulation, between the 8th and 10th cycle day. In this way, one can inseminate in the same cycle. Before the examination can be performed, there must be a negative chlamydia test from the cervix. The chlamydia test can be done here at the clinic or at your GP.

The examination itself takes place in a gynaecological ward.

Some people experience menstrual-like pain during the examination. The examination is performed without anaesthesia, and the vast majority can go to work immediately after the examination. For some, it may be a good idea to take painkillers one hour before the appointment.

After the examination, there may be a little extra thin discharge and maybe a little spotting. We recommend that you use bandages after the examination. The risk of infection is minimal, but if you experience pain and fever in the days after the examination, you must contact a doctor for any treatment. You can take painkillers, but it is usually not necessary.

If normal passage in both fallopian tubes can not be detected, our doctor will inform you about the further course. You may be recommended a keyhole examination of the fallopian tubes (laparoscopy) or that you should proceed to IVF treatment.
