Hysteroscopy

This investigation involves placing a narrow telescope with a camera into the womb and is used to examine the lining of the womb and the opening of the fallopian tubes, to determine whether there are any polyps, fibroids or adhesions present.


Introduction

A hysteroscopy is a procedure used to examine the inside of your uterus using a device called a hysteroscope, which is a narrow telescope with a light and camera at the end, that can easily be passed into your uterus through your vagina and cervix. The resulting images are sent to a monitor so your consultant can see inside your uterus to locate any problems. In terms of treatment, your consultant is able to easily diagnose conditions such as fibroids, polyps and Intrauterine adhesions, which can be removed safely during the procedure.


Who?

A hysteroscopy can be used to investigate symptoms and treat problems relating to heavy periods, unusual bleeding, pelvic pain, repeated miscarriages or other likely causes of infertility.  It may also be used during a dilatation and curettage procedure or endometrial biopsy to provide a more detailed view of the uterine lining.


How?

We will use a speculum (similar to that used in a smear test) to open your vagina to enable us to pass a hysteroscope through your cervix and into your uterus. We will then gently pump fluid into your uterus to make it easier for us to see the images clearly on a monitor to pinpoint any abnormalities.

What happens next?

The procedure usually takes 20 – 30 minutes in total. Your consultant will discuss the results of the investigations or any treatment performed before you leave the clinic. It is preferable that someone accompanies you home although you should be able to resume your normal activities the following day.


What are the side-effects/risks?

You may experience slight cramping and some spotting or light bleeding for a few days afterwards. We would recommend you abstain from intercourse for at least one week or until any bleeding has stopped so as to reduce any risk of infection. Whilst a hysteroscopy is generally a very safe procedure, there is a small risk of complications, which is higher for women who have had treatment undertaken during a hysteroscopy. This can include, accidental damage to your uterus or cervix although this is very rare. You may also develop an infection which presents as a fever and heavy bleeding.
