Understanding Hysteroscopy

Understanding Hysteroscopy

Hysteroscopy is a medical procedure that involves examining the inside of the uterus using a hysteroscope, a thin, lighted tube with a camera attached. The procedure can be diagnostic or therapeutic.

In a diagnostic hysteroscopy, the hysteroscope is inserted through the cervix and into the uterus to look for any abnormalities or problems, such as polyps, fibroids, adhesions, or other structural issues. The doctor can also take tissue samples (biopsy) for further testing if needed.

In a therapeutic hysteroscopy, the doctor may use specialized instruments through the hysteroscope to remove or treat any identified abnormalities. For example, polyps or fibroids can be removed, adhesions can be separated, or abnormal uterine tissue can be destroyed using a laser or electrical current.

Hysteroscopy is typically performed as an outpatient procedure and may be done under local or general anesthesia. It is a minimally invasive procedure and generally has a low risk of complications. It is commonly used to investigate and treat a variety of conditions, including abnormal bleeding, infertility, recurrent miscarriages, or to remove intrauterine devices (IUDs).
