    Default HyCoSy before IVF

    I've had all infertility tests done except tubal patency test. My FS recommends just skipping it and IUI and just doing IVF which we will start in the next couple of months. That give us a couple of months to keep trying naturally, so would the hycosy test be worth doing for peace of mind? Hate to think all our BDing is wasted on blocked tubes! Also heard a good flush could be beneficial!
    Any suggestions?
    Also how much is this test?

    Hi I'm not sure how much the test is here as I hd my treatment in UK and the hycosy cost £500 there. We were at the stage of our nhs doctor wanting to do a laparoscopy to check my tubes and I really didn't want that done so that was why we then went privately and had hycosy instead. Again the private doctor said we could skip it and go straight for ivf but I had heard that for some people it can help flush the tubes so opted to have it done. It didn't make any diff for us and we still went down ivf route but glad I did it so know my tubes are fine. However I did find it excruciatingly painful afterwards for some reason. I had the worst cramps a few hours later and could literally not move. And I'm pretty tolerant to pain normally, I ended up with severe ohss and was in hosp for 3 weeks but didn't even notice any ovarian pain!

    I think in the grand scale of things in terms of cost it's just a small part of the process so I think it's worth doing all initial work up so in the future you know whether all is working fine. X

    Im have an appointment next wed at Heidelberg Womens Ultrasound so hopefully won't be too painful and I'll have peace of mind too knowing the outcome!

    Good luck. Just make sure you take some ibuprofen afterwards and take it easy. X
