Hysteroscopy

Hysteroscopy is a procedure that allows your doctor to look inside your uterus in order to diagnose and treat causes of abnormal bleeding or infertility. Hysteroscopy is done using a hysteroscope, a thin, lighted tube that is inserted into the vagina to examine the cervix and inside of the uterus. An operative hysteroscopy can be used to remove polyps, fibroids and adhesions.

A hysteroscopy can either be in a hospital or at your doctor’s office. You can be either awake or under general anaesthesia during the procedure. If you’re awake, your doctor will give you medicine to help you relax. They’ll also use medication or tools called dilators to help open your cervix.  Hysteroscope is gently inserted through the cervix into your uterus and push saline through the hysteroscope into your uterus to expand it. This will give them a clear view of its lining and any abnormality can be identified and any growths  like polyp or septum if present can be identified and removed in the same sitting   and the opening of your fallopian tubes through the hysteroscope.
