A hysteroscopy can be performed at your doctor’s office or in a hospital. During the procedure, you can either be awake or under general anaesthesia. If you’re awake, your doctor will provide a tranquillizer to you. To assist in opening your cervix, they may also employ dilators, which are drugs or devices. A hysteroscope is carefully placed through the cervix into your uterus, expanding it by pushing saline through the hysteroscope. This will provide them a clear view of its lining, allowing them to spot any abnormalities, identify and remove any growths like polyps or septa that may be present, and open your fallopian tubes with the hysteroscope if necessary.
