Hysteroscopy is used to diagnose or treat problems of the uterus. A hysteroscope is a thin, lighted telescope-like device. It is inserted through your vagina into your uterus. The hysteroscope transmits the image of your uterus onto a screen. Other instruments are used along with the hysteroscope for treatment.

We use hysteroscopy to:

  • Take a tissue sample (biopsy)

  • Remove polyps or fibroid tumors

  • Prevent bleeding by destroying tissue using NovaSure ablation

Hysteroscopy is done in the office or in an outpatient setting. You may have local or no anesthesia. Procedures that are more complex may be done in the operating room under local, regional, or general anesthesia.

It is normal to have some mild cramping or a little bloody discharge for a few days after the procedure. You may be given medication to help ease the pain.
