A woman’s uterus is lined by a specialised layer of cells called the Endometrium, a lining that embryos implant and begin to develop during the pregnancy stage. It is this lining that is critical for thoroughly evaluating the woman’s uterine cavity to find out about potential defects or obstacles to implantation of the embryo. For instance, there is Uterine Scar Tissue (that comes from previous pregnancies or procedures) OR Polyps (a benign glandular growth) OR Fibroids OR other structural defects in the woman’s uterus.
Transvaginal (Pelvic) Ultrasound (TVS).
Fluid Ultrasound (Hydrosonography).
Based on the woman patient’s specific case, evaluation at Surya Fertility Centre is performed through the following tests:
COMPLETE PHYSICAL EXAMINATION: This takes into account even the external palpation of the woman’s uterus. The tests include a Pap’s Smear, Breast Examination and Cervical cultures.
BASELINE PELVIC ULTRASOUND: It’s a transvaginal ultrasound examination that is usually performed at the onset of the woman’s menstrual cycle on day 2 or 3 or 4. The test results help the doctor precise information on the direction and length of the woman’s uterine cavity.
HYSTEROSALPINGOGRAM (HSG):It’s a tubal evaluation that provides information regarding the structural defects of the woman’s uterine cavity.
