Sis Or Inflatable Womb?
When should sis or blow the uterus? On the 19th day is it still effective and safe?
Hello, thank you for your question.
SIS or Salt Infusion Sonohystergraphy or known by the term inflatable uterus is a method of examination to detect abnormalities in the uterus or fallopian tubes by inserting sterile saline into the uterus and examined by ultrasound. This fluid functions to clarify the picture of the uterine cavity that appears on ultrasound. SIS is performed on patients with:
Uterine bleeding is abnormal
Congenital abnormalities of the uterus
Pre / post evaluation of uterine surgery
Suspecting the uterus adhesions
In patients who are pregnant or are experiencing infection / pelvic inflammation this examination procedure should not be done. The recommended time of examination is after menstruation, usually on days 9-11 of the menstrual cycle, can be earlier in the shorter menstrual cycle. If the examination on the 19th day the examination is still safe to do but its effectiveness may be slightly reduced. This SIS is a safe procedure and causes few complications. Complications that can arise in the form of abdominal pain, bleeding, vaginal discharge, and others. We recommend that you consult the obstetrician before doing this examination.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
