    I've got an appointment for a hycosy on 12th May which is in the middle of the 2ww. Am I right in thinking that I shouldn't ttc that month? I'll phone the hospital and ask and I don't fully understand what a hycosy involves yet but I think its something flushed through the uterus and fallopian tubes to check for blockages??

    It seems to me like a really obvious question but I can't believe that nothing was mentioned about this from the hospital, is pretty important to the health of the possible fertilised eggy (wishful thinking I know, but still....)

    This may not help but hope it does.

    Its sound like the same procedure that i had but it was called a hysterosalpingogram where they run dye through your tubes to check for blockages. My understanding was it has to be done between CD 5-10, my FS advised if there was a chance of being pregnant they will not carry it out. BTW for the next 3 months after it apparently increase fertility. fx

    It is the same as an HSG apparently, my hospital doesn't seem bothered about what day of my cycle I'm on as long as I haven't got my period. I'll phone and ask but I assume most places want it doing between days 5 and 10 is to make sure that you haven't O'd yet and there is no chance you could be pg that cycle??

    I'm due the :witch: on Friday so I might not need it but I'm not very hopeful this month, I haven't even thought about POAS :cry:

    hi, i was told that they wouldn't do the hycosy unless i declared that i had not had unprotected intercourse during that cycle - they were very strict on it !

    Hi

    I had a Hycosy a couple of months ago and was told as long as I had done a PG test it didn't matter what day of the cycle I was on - good job really as I was on something like CD 128!
