What is hysteroscopy?

This procedure allows your doctor to examine the lining of the uterus with the use of a hysteroscope, a tool that is inserted into the vagina and into the cervix and uterus.

Why is it performed?

The procedure is performed in order to find the cause of symptoms such as abnormal bleeding and severe cramping. It is also used to investigate reasons for infertility, numerous miscarriages, or to remove fibroids. For more information on fibroids, see here

Hysteroscopy can also be performed for one of the following reasons:

  • To remove adhesions caused by infection or past surgery
  • To diagnose the reason causing repeated miscarriage
  • To locate and remove a lost intrauterine device
  • To perform a sterilisation procedure – for more information on sterilization, see here

How does it work?

A hysteroscopy is conducted by a gynaecologist. The cervix is dilated before your gynaecologist inserts a hysteroscope through the cervix into the uterus. A fluid or gas is put through the hysteroscope, allowing your gynaecologist to see the lining of the uterus clearly.
