Do I need HyCoSy (with history of chemical pregnancies)?

Hello! I just wondered if anyone had any experience/knowledge of this please ...

I’m looking to get some more tests done to check my fertility (have had all blood tests and waiting on a normal ultrasound) and wondering about the HyCoSy or other scans that are done to check if tubes are blocked.

As I have had 2 chemical pregnancies (within 5 months of ttc) I just wondered whether it was necessary to get this test? As I have been able to get pregnant does this mean at least one of my tubes are open, or could it be possible I had 2 ectopic pregnancies that showed up as positive on my tests and tubes could still be blocked?

I can’t get to actually speak to a doctor due to Covid to ask these questions, though hopefully will at some point, but just wondered whether anyone had any knowledge of this in the meantime? Would really appreciate it! Smile

Hi ladies

I came across this thread as I just found out I have a uterine polyp and a fibroid after an ultrasound scan I had privately. I booked it in order to get an antral follicle scan after my CD 2 FSH result came as 22 units and was panicking so I needed to know if there's any hope at all. This high result suggests early menopause and I'm 38. GP referred me to a specialist, however, the appointment I got is only online and at the end of July. Antral follicle count is 6 this month, and while it's not entirely hopeless, with the polyp my chances are even less I guess.
Anyway, I just wanted to say your discussion here has been very informative and I'm very sorry to hear about everyone's struggle. I hope since the last message was almost a year ago and things are picking up after covid, perhaps things have worked out for all of you!
Please feel free to share if you feel like it, your story, or advice for me if you have or just anything, it makes a difference talking to someone who's been through the same! I still haven't had the chance to speak to a specialist.
