This information is provided to help you understand when a hysteroscopy is a good option and what to expect. Book an appointment online or by phone for more details.
What is a hysteroscopy?
A hysteroscopy is a procedure that allows your doctor to “see” the inside of your uterus and cervix. It is a powerful diagnostic tool that enables an exam of these reproductive organs without invasive techniques or tissue removal.
The process uses a small hysteroscopy device inserted through your vagina. There is no need for incisions to access your reproductive tissues.
Beyond Women’s Care is proud to offer the Endosee® Advance visualization system for hysteroscopy procedures. This advanced platform assists your gynecologist in determining which diagnostic or treatment steps are necessary.
What conditions can a hysteroscopy reveal?
A hysteroscopy is a great option for diagnosing the cause of abnormal bleeding, as well as many other gynecologic issues like infertility, pelvic pain, and recurrent miscarriage. Some of the reasons your gynecologist may recommend hysteroscopy include:
- Uterine polyps
- Uterine fibroids
- Uterine adhesions
- Uterine septum
In some cases, treatment procedures can also be performed using hysteroscopy as a visual tool. The Endosee system offers multiple specialized surgical tools to remove tissue in a carefully controlled manner.
What happens during a hysteroscopy?
You might be surprised to learn that the entire hysteroscopy procedure takes just moments to complete. Your exam can be performed in-house, and there is no need for advanced preparation or recovery time unless hysteroscopy is incorporated into a treatment procedure.
In most cases, there is no need for anesthesia, although more complex procedures that use hysteroscopy to guide treatment may require some form of anesthesia to keep you comfortable. The Endosee system uses a slim probe inserted through your vagina.
You may feel some pressure during the exam, but there is no significant discomfort. The imaging created using the system is displayed on an external screen in real-time, allowing your doctor to reposition the probe to ensure all areas have been examined.
If you are experiencing abnormal bleeding, or are concerned about recurring miscarriage or infertility, call the office today to book an appointment. Online scheduling is also available and takes just moments to complete.
