What is Hysteroscopy?

Hysteroscopy is a procedure that enables the surgeon to view the internal structures of your uterine cavity without the need for an incision.

Hysteroscopy is a test done to evaluate the possible causes of infertility. If you are having heavy menstrual bleeding, discomfort, and pain, your doctor may suggest you undergo hysteroscopy. Uterine problems can be the reason behind infertility and repeated miscarriages. Uterine polyps or removal of scar tissue done with the help of hysteroscopy increases the chances of conception.

If you are considering IVF, you will be advised hysteroscopy to check if your womb is healthy enough to carry a successful IVF procedure. Any positive findings can help to prevent IVF failure and your financial burden or emotional turmoil. It helps you in making a decision regarding IVF.

Your surgeon can correct the following uterine conditions by performing hysteroscopy:

Hysteroscopy not only helps in the diagnosis, but it is also used to perform minor surgical procedures. Generally, any minor anatomical issues of the uterus are treated during the hysteroscopy procedure. In the infertility treatment, hysteroscopy is essential for the removal of fibroids, polyps, and other anatomical defects.

Removal of Polyps and Fibroids

Enlarged polyps or fibroids cause recurrent pregnancy loss and infertility. These uterine tissue growths can be removed by hysteroscopy.

Locate and remove adhesions

Scar tissue formed in the uterus can cause increased menstrual flow and infertility. With hysteroscopy, the surgeon can locate these adhesions and remove them.

Septums

A septate uterus is a deformity of the uterus, which increases the risk of miscarriage. Hysteroscopy is done to remove the septum.

Abnormal bleeding

Hysteroscopy can help to determine the cause of heavy menstrual bleeding and bleeding in between periods. Areas of bleeding found during the procedure are treated using a laser, electrocautery, or surgical removal.

Surgical procedures performed during hysteroscopy increases your chances of pregnancy. It is a safe procedure with minimal complications. You can return to your daily activities within one or two days of the surgery.
