Understanding Hysteroscopy


This is Dr Manu, senior consultant in reproductive medicine and I have a specialized interest in dealing with PCOS.

Much of my lives work has been spend around helping people with polycystic ovarian syndrome conceive naturally & also reverse this disease with simple treatments

In today’s short read we are going to discuss a bit about hysteroscopy

What is Hysteroscopy?

A hysteroscope is a small device with a light and camera, used to visualize the uterus. The device also helps visualize the fallopian tubes (birth tubes).

Hysteroscopy usually causes mild discomfort and can be done in less than 6 minutes. 

While the most important use of a hysteroscope is to visualize and look for uterine/tubal pathologies, a hysteroscopy can also be used by your doctor to remove a polyp or fibroid.


What is an office hysteroscopy?

Hysteroscopy for all practical purposes can be done in the doctors office with local anesthesia, this form of hysteroscopy is called ‘office hysteroscopy’. 

How long to recover after a hysteroscopy?

Usually, after an office hysteroscopy you will recover within an hour. 

You may have mild pain, nausea or shoulder ache that will settle down on its own.

Hysteroscopy when done right is a fairly safe procedure. 

However, if you have constant bleeding post the procedure you should visit your doctor. Complications from hysteroscopy are very rare.
