Outpatient hysteroscopy is a procedure which involves the examination of the inside of your uterus (womb) using a very small camera. You will not have any cuts or scars following a normal hysteroscopy as the camera is inserted through the opening in the cervix.
A hysteroscopy is commonly performed for one of the following reasons to look for the cause of the problem and plan or undertake treatment if needed.
- Very heavy periods
- Bleeding after the menopause (postmenopausal bleeding)
- Bleeding between periods
- Irregular bleeding while on hormonal treatment
- Removal of a coil when the threads are not visible at the cervix
- Fertility investigation
- Following a miscarriage
- To investigate something seen inside the uterus on an ultrasound scan, such as an endometrial polyp or fibroid.
Diagnostic Hysteroscopy is performed at Northway Clinic in Canning Town, London. More information can be found HERE.
