For a thorough examination of the interior of your uterus (womb), your consultant may suggest a hysteroscopy. This procedure serves both diagnostic and treatment purposes.

During this hysteroscopic surgery, a hysteroscope – a slender, flexible tube with an attached light – is gently inserted through your vagina into your womb. This enables your surgeon to inspect the interior of your womb, collect tissue samples (biopsies), or remove small growths, fibroids, and other abnormalities.

Hysteroscopy is typically performed as an outpatient procedure, often under local anaesthesia. In certain cases, depending on your specific needs, your consultant might recommend general anaesthesia and an overnight hospital stay. It's essential to discuss the chosen approach with your healthcare provider.

Following hysteroscopic surgery, you may experience mild bleeding and period-like discomfort for a day or so, which can be managed with pain relievers.

Most women can resume their regular activities the day after hysteroscopic surgery.
