What is Hysteroscopy?

A hysteroscopy is a procedure to look inside your womb (uterus). It’s done with a narrow tube-like telescope with a camera called a hysteroscopy. A hysteroscopy can be used to diagnose and/or treat a problem with your womb.

The Gynecologist may recommend that you have a hysteroscopy for one of a number of different reasons. These include the following.

  • To help find out what is causing you to have unusual bleeding from your vagina, for example heavy periods or bleeding after your menopause.
  • To check for polyps (small growths of tissue in your womb lining) or some types of fibroids (non-cancerous growths of muscle in your womb).
  • To see if there are any problems within your womb if you’re having problems getting pregnant or have had several miscarriages.
  • To treat scar tissue (adhesions) within the lining of your womb.
  • To take out an intra-uterine system (IUS), or coil, that has moved out of place.
  • To carry out a permanent form of contraception (sterilization).

  • Recovering from a hysteroscopy :

    After your hysteroscopy, you may feel ready to go back to work the next day, or you may need to rest and take it easy for a day or two.

    It’s normal to have some mild period-like cramping pains and some bleeding for a few days after your hysteroscopy.

    Most women don’t have any problems after having a hysteroscopy. However, if you develop any of the following symptoms, contact your doctor.

  • Heavy bleeding that lasts for longer than 12 days.
  • Vaginal discharge that is dark or smells unpleasant.
  • Severe pain or pain that lasts for more than 48 hours.
  • A high temperature.
