Hysteroscopy

Hysteroscopic surgery involves inserting a telescope into the uterus.

It enables more precise diagnosis and treatment of women with irregular vaginal bleeding and may be recommended to diagnose and treat the following:

  • Endometrial polyps (over growth of the lining of the uterus)
  • Submucous fibroids (small benign muscle tumours)
  • Abnormal endometrial thickening

A Hysteroscopy involves a light, general anaesthetic and lasts approximately 20 minutes. You will need someone to drive you to and from Hospital and are generally in Hospital for no more than two hours. Most women take the next day off work and can expect a blood stained discharge for up to one week.

The risks related to this surgery are low and complications uncommon.
