Hysterosalpingography or Hysterosalpingogram: done to determine if the Fallopian tubes are free and functional. It involves applying a special dye as a contrast method; then an X-ray is done and it evaluates how the dye travels through the uterus and the fallopian tubes.
It might determine if there is an obstruction and at what level.
Hysterosonogram: is very similar to the Hysterosalpingogram, with the difference that an ultrasound is used together with the inyection of saline solution into the uterine cavity,
to evaluate its shape and making sure it is mass-free.
These are minor surgeries, in which a small camera is used to visualize the female reproductive organs and their surroundings and they can be done as diagnostic or therapeutic purposes.
When uterine fibroids or myomas (masses) are observed, or endometriosis and other conditions that may interfere with a pregnancy are suspected, the doctor may suggest performing one of these surgeries: Hysteroscopy or Laparoscopy.
Endocrinology is the medical science dedicated to hormonal function, which is closely related to sexual and reproductive health of human beings. It is a strategic move for CER to have a team of endocrinologists and reproductive endocrinologists who seek to develop a comprehensive medicine. Hormonal balance is an essential part for the proper reproductive functioning and a good life quality. We have an on-site laboratory where we study a wide variety of hormones in real time which allow us an efficient management of the different pathologies.
There are many reasons why a woman may be subfertile:
The physical examination is similar to a regular gynecology exam. Usually, the ovaries and the uterus are examined by ultrasound, during the first days (2-5) of the cycle. Blood analysis is also done to evaluate the hormone function.
The diagnosis of subfertility can take up to several months; therefore, do not be discouraged if you do not get a quick answer. Consider the possibility that with the current tests available a determined diagnostic cannot be reached; however, treatments to begin seeking a pregnancy can be started.
