Hysteroscopy is a medical procedure used to examine the inside of the uterus. During this procedure, a specialized device called a hysteroscope is used. The hysteroscope is a thin, flexible tube-like instrument with a camera and a light source at its tip.

Hysteroscopy can be performed for various reasons. These reasons may include recurrent miscarriages, fertility issues, abnormal bleeding, uterine polyps or fibroids, intrauterine adhesions, and recurrent pelvic infections. During the procedure, the doctor inserts the hysteroscope into the uterus by using a tool to dilate the cervix. With the camera and light source inside the hysteroscope, the doctor can examine the structures inside the uterus and, if necessary, take biopsies.

Hysteroscopy is typically performed under local anesthesia, and the procedure generally takes between 30 minutes to one hour. Mild cramping or spotting may be experienced after the procedure, but these symptoms usually resolve quickly.

Hysteroscopy is a highly effective method for detecting and diagnosing intrauterine problems and is often used for the treatment of problems that require surgical intervention. The information obtained during the procedure can aid in determining the appropriate treatment and achieving better outcomes.
