To fully examine the inside of your uterus (womb) your consultant may recommend a hysteroscopy. This procedure can be used to both diagnose and treat problems.

They may find small tumours, scar tissue or polyps which can be removed without the need for further surgery.

What happens during hysteroscopic surgery?

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 hysteroscopic surgery

After a hysteroscopic surgery 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 hysteroscopic surgery.
