Hysteroscopy Q & A

What is hysteroscopy?

Hysteroscopy is a procedure that uses a special instrument inserted through your vagina to see the inside of your uterus. It's most commonly performed to examine and evaluate the lining of your uterus and identify issues that could be affecting the uterus and causing symptoms like abnormal periods, problems getting pregnant or pelvic pain. It can also be used to remove fibroids and polyps and to perform biopsies so small samples of tissue can be microscopically examined in a lab.

How is hysteroscopy performed?

Hysteroscopy is a same-day surgery, which means you can go home soon after the procedure is performed. The cervix will be numbed using a local anesthetic and a speculum will be used to gently widen your vagina to make it easier to access your uterus. The hysteroscope will be inserted through your vagina and advanced through the cervix into your uterus. In most cases, a small amount of gas will be pumped into your uterus to make it easier to visualize. Dr. Wirth may look through the hysteroscope directly or he may look at images projected on a computer screen. If a procedure or biopsy is performed, specially-designed tools can be inserted through the hysteroscope. A routine diagnostic hysteroscope takes about 30 minutes to perform; if a procedure is being performed, it may take longer.

How will I feel following the procedure?

Once the hysteroscope procedure is complete, you'll be taken to a recovery area for a few hours before being released. You can expect some vaginal bleeding for a few days as well as mild discomfort in your belly caused by the gas. Over-the-counter pain medication can help relieve the discomfort, which should resolve within a day. When procedures are performed, recovery and discomfort may take longer. Dr. Wirth will discuss your recovery during your office visit and you'll be given complete instructions for care following your procedure.
