What happens during hysteroscopy?
A hysteroscopy is usually performed as an outpatient procedure under a local anaesthetic. Depending on your own situation a general anaesthetic and an overnight stay may be required. Be sure and discuss what method will be used with your consultant.
A thin, flexible tube with a light at the end (a hysteroscope) is passed through your vagina into your womb. This allows your surgeon to look inside your womb and take tissue samples (biopsies) or remove small growths or fibroids.
After a hysteroscopy
After a hysteroscopy you may have some mild bleeding and period-type pains for a day or so that can be controlled with painkillers. Most women return to normal activities the day following a hysteroscopy.
