What is hysteroscopy?

This procedure is a minimally invasive surgical procedure for viewing the inside of the uterus. Hysteroscopy is performed by inserting a visualizing scope through the vagina and into the cervical opening. Hysteroscopy allows visualization of the inside of the uterus, including the openings to the Fallopian tubes, as well as direct examination of the cervix, cervical canal, and vagina.

Comment from: Vero, 19-24 Female (Patient) Published: February 09

I had a hysteroscopy (outpatient procedure) done to remove my IUD (intrauterine device) which had lost its strings and was misplaced. I was put into general anesthesia and only had a mild cramping as well as a small blood loss (period like) upon waking up. I was a bit nervous as it was my first hospital procedure but the staff was really friendly and managed to put me at ease.

I had a hysteroscopy yesterday at my local hospital with no pain medication. I would definitely urge anyone undergoing this procedure to ask for some kind of pain relief before having this done. The nurses were all very kind but the doctor who performed this never once explained what was happening. If I ever have to have this done again I will definitely ask for a local anesthetic.
