About Hysteroscopy

This information is intended for general information only and should not be considered as medical advice on the part of Health-Tourism.com. Any decision on medical treatments, after-care or recovery should be done solely upon proper consultation and advice of a qualified physician.
What is Hysteroscopy?
Hysteroscopy is a medical procedure in which the uterine cavity is examined through the cervix using an endoscopic tube known as a hysteroscope. Abnormalities and problems related to the uterus may be diagnosed and treated during a hysteroscopy. Surgical sterilization may also be done using hysteroscopy which helps the doctor to locate an area for biopsy. Hysteroscopy may be performed as an alternative or in addition to dilation and curettage (D&C).

How is Hysteroscopy Performed?
  • Hysteroscopy is performed using a hysteroscope, which is a thin endoscopic instrument with a light and camera attached to its end.
  • A speculum is used to open the vagina.
  • Then the cervix is dilated and the hysteroscope is inserted into the uterus through the cervix.
  • Gas or fluid may be used to inflate the uterus.
  • Tiny surgical instruments can be passed through the hysteroscope which helps to surgically remove polyps and fibroids.
  • Tissue samples may be extracted for examination.
  • A magnified view of the uterus lining and uterine openings of the fallopian tube is viewed during hysteroscopy.
  • Patients experience mild cramping during the procedure if local anesthesia is used.

How to Prepare for Hysteroscopy?
  • The patient needs to go through a thorough physical examination.
  • The doctor should be informed if the patient is
    • Pregnant
    • Taking any medication
    • Allergic to any medication
    • Treated for any pelvic, uterine, cervical or vaginal infection 6 weeks prior to hysteroscopy
    • Suffering from heart or lung ailments
  • The patient is advised to undergo hysteroscopy when the patient is not menstruating.
  • The patient should not use tampons, douche or vaginal medicines for 24 hours prior to hysteroscopy.
  • Arrangements should be made for someone to drive the patient home.
