Fluid: During a sonohystogram fluid is injected into the cavity of the uterus. It will drain out after dragging with it mucous and endometrial debris.

Is it true that excessive heavy bleeding after a sonohysterogram is something to be concerned about?
Yes: A sonohysterogram really should have minimal bleeding associated with the procedure. If a single tooth tenaculum is used on the cerivx to stabilize, there may be bleeding from that area. This is easy to rectify if true. The procedure itself does not carry a risk of heavy bleeding. Follow up with your doctor is bleeding does not subside. ...Read more

At appmnt for sonohysterogram, tech does tvs first then says fluid in my uterus made polyp show clearly & no need for shg. Is this correct or lazy?

Likely your doctor will perform a hysteroscopy to see it clearly and remove it. Make sure you are clear and like your doctors plan for care. ...Read more
I am 56 years old, 3 biopsies (october 2012 last one all benign), 2 sonohysterograms, hysteroscopy, ablation how likely is it that this is cancer?

Biopsies can be negative if they miss a tumor, but 3 all negative if done by a competent gyn is unlikely to be a false negative, especially if all the other workup is negative. Still, it would depend on what other symptoms and if they persist.. ...Read more
We all are: A 3-word question with no details... well, life is short on Earth, regardless of whether a person lives 3 days, 3000 days, or 30,000 days. It is not length of one's life that matters, but the quality of the life lived. The goal is not to live a long life, but to live a good life. Even if a person makes it all the way to age 82, that's only 30,000 days. ...Read more
