If you’re getting heavy menstrual periods and severe cramps, or your doctor wants to know more about your reproductive wellbeing, she may recommend you a hysteroscopy. During a hysteroscopy, your doctor inserts a small-diameter device (hysteroscope) into your uterus. This tube has a light and a small camera on the end which allows your doctor to see into your cervix and inside your uterus. And if she finds anything unusual, she can take a sample for further testing.
Situations in which your doctor may recommend this procedure are:
Your doctor will first spread the cervix with a device called a speculum. The doctor will then insert the hysteroscopy device in through your vaginal opening and continue inserting it through the cervix and then into your uterus. A liquid or carbon dioxide gas will then be gently sent into your uterus through the device to clear the surface and to help widen it slightly.
The light and camera on the end of the hysteroscope will allow the doctor to see the uterus and fallopian tubes. This allows them to diagnose any issues or to perform any surgical procedures necessary.
If the procedure is being done for surgery, the surgical instruments will also be put through the hysteroscope tube to do the surgery.
The process shouldn’t be painful. However, you may get some cramping during the procedure. Your doctor may give you some sedative to make you relaxed.
For diagnostic purposes, the hysteroscopy can be performed in your doctor’s office with local anesthesia. Small polyps also can be removed through this procedure. But, when the hysteroscopy is done in conjunction with a more in-depth surgical procedure, it should be done in a hospital under a regional or general anesthesia.
Just like any surgery, you could have some complications from a hysteroscopy, like:
