Female fertility naturally begins to decline after age 30, and in women of 36 years of age or more, it is advised that you talk to a doctor about fertility as soon as you start trying to conceive, as fertility tests can take time.
In cases of female infertility or subfertility, a uterine cavity assessment is recommended. This assessment allows the doctor to examine the shape of the uterus and fallopian tubes, and check for structural or functional issues, including tumours, polyps, fibroids, cysts, adhesions, scarring or endometriosis.
There are a number of diagnostic procedures that can be used to assess uterine health, including: hysterosalpingography, which is an x-ray of the female reproductive organs using a special x-ray device called a fluoroscope, which also can evaluate the openness of the fallopian tubes.
It is most commonly used to evaluate cases of infertility; transvaginal ultrasound scan, allows the doctor to visualise the endometrium (uterine lining), ovaries and uterine cavity. It is a key component of infertility treatment; hysterosonography; this is a more precise diagnostic method than hysterosalpingography, and thus is used when more precise delineation of the uterine cavity is needed; and hysteroscopy, performed under general aesthetic and offering a clear visualisation of the uterine cavity.
Hysterosalpingography is recommended in cases of female infertility or difficulty conceiving. It gives the doctor a picture of the shape and size of your reproductve organs and can show any structural or functional issues, tumours, or scarring that are impeding your ability to conceive
