What is Hysteroscopy?

A hysteroscopy is a common procedure that is usually performed as an outpatient. It is performed using a hysteroscope to examine the inside of the uterus (a narrow tube with a telescope at the end). Images are transferred to a computer in order to provide a close-up of the womb. Your hysteroscopy can be performed under local or general anaesthesia, depending on the reason for the procedure.


A hysteroscopy can be used to aid in the diagnosis of cases where a woman's symptoms suggest a womb problem, including pelvic pain, heavy or irregular periods, bleeding between normal periods, unusual vaginal discharge, repeated miscarriage, and infertility. Moreover, a hysteroscopy can also be used to remove abnormal womb growths.
