SHORTCUTS FAQ

Our experienced team of specialists can can evaluate your uterine health, hormone levels, and overall fertility. Call us to make an appointment. Both you and your partner are advised to see a doctor, as fertility issues can affect both men and women.

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.
