Foam is
the future

ExEm® Foam ((air polymer-type A) intrauterine foam) is an innovative, FDA-approved contrast drug that allows for ultrasound tubal patency testing in women with known or suspected infertility. 

The Foam procedure is less painful than X-ray HSG,3 and offers a less complicated, less invasive alternative to the gold standard for diagnosing tubal patency – laparoscopy.1

The Science

Proven accuracy. Minimum invasiveness.

ExEm® Foam is the only FDA-approved contrast agent for use with Trans Vaginal Ultrasound (TVUS), which can be performed in the privacy and comfort of the gynecologist's office.

Studies suggest that, with proper imaging technique, hysterosalpingo-foam sonography (HyFoSy) with ExEm® Foam does not significantly differ from laparoscopy with dye and has the ability to achieve significantly higher accuracy than hysterosalpingo-contrast sonography with air/saline, making it an attractive new alternative for tubal patency assessment and diagnosis in women with known or suspected infertility.1,2

Tubal disease is a leading cause of infertility. However, an inaccurate fallopian tube evaluation can lead to unnecessary procedures — such as tubal reconstructive surgery or in vitro fertilization — when other methods of conception are possible. For patients with known or suspected infertility, ExEm® Foam can help quickly, safely, and accurately give the answers needed, at the start of the fertility journey.

How ExEm® Foam works is simple: if the fallopian tubes are patent — or open — the foam will appear as a thin, bright white line, when visualized with ultrasound by your healthcare provider. If the white line does not appear, the tubes might be occluded — or blocked. 

After the procedure, the results can immediately be discussed with your physician in more detail and used to help plan the next steps in your fertility journey.

Here’s what patients and doctors say

Over a half-million patients around the world have experienced a tubal patency procedure with ExEm® Foam. Here is some of their feedback.
