HSG en verstopte buise
HI,

My dokter stuur my vir 'n HSG omdat hy vermoed dat my buise dalk verstop is en ek kan nie swanger raak nie.

1. Hoekom betaal die medies nie vir die HSG nie?
2. Indien my buise verstop is, wat se prosedure gebruik hulle om dit oop te maak?
3. Is daar nie 'n natuurlike produk wat kan help om die buise oop te kry nie?
4. Kan verstopte buise ook die oorsaak wees van endometriose?
5. Indien wel, betaal die medies vir endometriose?

Dankie,

It is part of infertility investigation which most medical aids do not pay for.
If your tubes are blocked, an operation can be done to open them, provided that the damage is not too severe. If it is severe, IVF would be the next option.
Natural products will not open tubes. It is like a pipe that is blocked. The only way to open it is to cut through the blockage. Endometriosis can cause blocked tubes. Your medical aid probably will pay for endometriosis treatment.
