A hysteroscopy is a diagnostic medical procedure employed to look inside the uterus. A thin instrument called a hysteroscope is passed through your vagina and cervix and into your uterus to help your doctor find the cause of a possible problem, to look for cancer in the lining of the uterus or to facilitate an operation.
When is a hysteroscopy necessary?
Your doctor might suggest a hysteroscopy if you have:
- heavy and/or long menstrual periods
- bleeding between your periods
- bleeding after menopause
- irregular cycles
- severe cramping
- frequent miscarriages (lost pregnancies)
- a displaced intrauterine device (IUD)
- difficulty getting pregnant (infertility)
Following a diagnosis, hysteroscopy may be used in conjunction with special equipment to fix the issue.
