Hysteroscopy is a procedure in which your doctor inserts a small-diameter device into your uterus. This device has a light and a small camera on the end to allow the doctor to see inside your uterus. This procedure does not need any surgical cuts and can be performed by inserting telescope through cervix. It may be used:

  • for visual confirmation of another test result
  • to aid in the removal of fibroids and polyps
  • in conjunction with a laparoscopic procedure
  • prior to a dilation and curettage procedure
  • to discover any malformation of the uterus
  • investigation of infertility
  • endometrial ablation (a treatment where the uterine lining is removed due to heavy periods)
