What is a Hysteroscopy?

Hysteroscopy is a procedure that involves the inspection of the interior of your uterus (womb). This is achieved by inserting a slender, telescope-like instrument known as a hysteroscope, equipped with a small camera, through the cervix (the neck of the womb)

During hysteroscopy, the healthcare provider conducting the procedure can visually assess the interior of your uterus to identify any issues that may necessitate further investigation or treatment.

When is hysteroscopy performed?

You may be recommended a hysteroscopy for the following reasons:
  • Managing and exploring abnormal bleeding, such as heavy menstrual periods and bleeding between periods.
  • Addressing postmenopausal bleeding.
  • Removing polyps detected on imaging or extracting an intrauterine device (coil) with missing threads.
  • Investigating issues related to fertility and miscarriage.
  • Assessing unscheduled bleeding in individuals on hormone replacement therapy.
