Hysteroscopy is a procedure in which a thin telescope is inserted into the vagina to examine the cervix and inside of the uterus. Hysteroscopy can be either diagnostic or operative.
Hysteroscopy is a gold standard for visualisation of uterine cavity and treatment of any pathology inside the uterus.
Diagnostic Hysteroscopy is used to diagnose the problems of the uterus.
Operative Hysteroscopy is used to correct any abnormalities detected during a diagnostic hysteroscopy. If an abnormal condition is detected during the diagnostic hysteroscopy, an operative hysteroscopy can be performed at the same time.
Hysteroscopy is usually scheduled in the first week after the menstruation. At this time, the uterine lining is thin and there is no bleeding, so the views inside the uterus are best.
Hysteroscopy can also performed to determine the cause of unexplained bleeding, heavy periods or spotting in postmenopausal women.
