A hysteroscopy procedure can be life saving. With this procedure, your doctor has the ability to see, diagnose, and treat. Although hysteroscopy procedures have an intimidating reputation, they are one of the safest procedures of their kind. Talk to us about any fears or concerns you may have about the procedure.

What is a Hysteroscopy?

Hysteroscopy is a technique that allows a doctor to look directly into your cervical canal and uterus. It is typically done during the first week or so after your period. A thin, telescopic instrument called a hysteroscope is inserted into the uterus through the cervix, allowing the doctor to examine the interior shape and lining of your uterus and fallopian tubes. The purpose is to look for any evidence of abnormalities or disease and to decide which approach to take for treatment.

What are the Benefits of a Hysteroscopy?

Hysteroscopies can be performed quickly and conveniently in the doctor’s office, surgical center, or hospital. Diagnostic hysteroscopy only takes a few minutes, and you can go home shortly after the procedure. Even when an operative procedure is performed, the recovery time is very short. Almost all patients go home the same day after hysteroscopic surgery. Unlike some other procedures, there is very little pain after hysteroscopic surgery and problems such as injury to the cervix or the uterus, infection, or heavy bleeding occur in less than one percent of patients.

Why Have a Hysteroscopy?

The most common reason for performing a hysteroscopy is to determine the cause of heavy or abnormal vaginal bleeding. Your doctor can also look for the underlying causes of infertility (the inability to conceive a child) or repeated miscarriages.

Treatable Conditions

Hysteroscopy can uncover and sometimes immediately treat many types of irregularities, most of which are benign (noncancerous) in nature, including:

  • Fibriods
  • Polyps
  • Uterine Septum
  • Intrauterine Adhesions
  • Block of the fallopian tubes
