Doppler Tests & Urological Procedures

BOOK APPOINTMENT

What Is a Doppler Test?

A Doppler test is a sophisticated diagnostic tool that generates high-frequency waves to measure blood flow to the penis. It is particularly helpful in evaluating erectile dysfunction (ED). Before the commencement of the procedure, your doctor will likely administer an injection that will cause an erection. During the erectile window that follows, an ultrasound device will gauge the flow of blood to the penis to present the root of the ED.

Why Choose a Doppler Test?

A Doppler test is most often performed on men who have witnessed frequent episodes of erectile dysfunction (ED).

Underlying Problem

A Doppler test can point to the root of erectile dysfunction, by highlighting the exact cause. ED could be triggered by an arterial problem, a venous leak or a combination of the two.

Therapy Selection

A Doppler ultrasound can help your doctor in tailoring a selection of therapies best suited for you.

Is a Doppler Test Right for Me?

A Doppler procedure is recommended if you’ve been suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED). ED can be a significant hurdle in the lead up to ejaculation, in turn, hindering your fertility. If you find that drawing an erection is becoming increasingly difficult, consider consulting your doctor for a Doppler test.

What Are the Steps of a Doppler Test?

On Cloudnine, a Doppler ultrasound is a routine, painless process that stimulates an erection so that the penile curvature, arteries and veins can be examined.

1

Stimulated Penile Erection

The penis is a conducive canvas to draw information from only when it is erect. Hence, your doctor may pass a tiny, lightweight needle through the penis to elicit an erection. In the ten minutes that follow, you should experience a complete erectile stimulation.

2

Penile Examination

An erection provides an effective window for your doctor to examine the curvature of the penis, and to check for any wounds, malformations or indents. Your doctor will also gauge the blood flow, discuss the outcome of the test with you in detail, and walk you through the next possible steps.

What Are the Risks of a Doppler Test?

There is an extremely low likelihood of a Doppler test leading to any significant side effects. The only risk that the procedure potentially poses is an extended erection.

Extended Erection

A stimulated erection that lasts too long could present dangers to the penis. On occasion, an erection that persists beyond the recommended threshold may warrant a reversal injection. On Cloudnine, our fertility consultants take due care to ensure that your erection has begun subsiding before they let you go home.

Our IUI Was Successful, Thanks to Dr. Manju Nair

We had a wonderful experience with Dr. Manju Nair at the Cloudnine Fertility Clinic. We underwent an intrauterine insemination (IUI), and Dr. Nair and the entire support staff were very friendly, proactive and understanding at every stage. They took extremely good care of us. The IUI proved successful, and we were finally pregnant by the grace of God and Dr. Manju Nair’s expert treatment – a life update we had been eagerly awaiting. Our gratitude knows no bounds and we would like to thank each person involved in making our journey memorable.

When I Look Back on Our Fertility Struggle, I Wish We Had Met Dr. Manju Nair Sooner

My wife and I had been trying for a baby for almost three years, having consulted at least 3-4 renowned doctors in Bangalore without any success. After two failed intrauterine insemination (IUI) cycles, we were advised a surgical scan. However, we were wary of going under the knife as part of a diagnostic procedure, and decided against it. Shortly afterwards, we met Dr. Manju Nair on Cloudnine, and we were pleased with our first interaction. She tried to understand our history, the tests done so far, and took note of all our past consultations. Then, she recommended some additional tests for my wife and referred me to an andrologist. Once she had our reports, she was able to pinpoint the problem within a few short weeks. Based on the findings, Dr. Nair communicated the most advisable treatment, and left the final decision to us. Given my sperm morphology, the options were limited – it was either surgery for me, or in vitro fertilisation (IVF). The surgical scan we had been recommended at our previous clinic wasn’t required at all. We went for IVF as per Dr. Nair’s suggestion and the procedure was a success. We were amazed when the pregnancy test showed positive. Today, our baby is almost four months old.

We really valued Dr. Nair’s friendliness, approachability, positivity and tell-it-like-it-is attitude. She boosted our confidence, gave us hope, yet, never made any false promises. We always came back feeling good after every consultation. I would definitely recommend Dr. Manju Nair to anyone struggling to conceive. She is the finest doctor we have ever met and we wish her continued success in the future.

When I look back on our fertility struggle of almost 3 years – visiting different doctors, waiting in long queues and undergoing numerous scans – I only wish we had met Dr. Nair sooner.
