Hysteroscopy

ultrasound demonstration

Hysteroscopy is a short outpatient procedure, carried out under local anaesthetic, which is commonly used to diagnose problems with the womb or uterus. Reasons for doing this include:

  • To investigate bleeding during menopause
  • To take a biopsy of the womb lining to rule out cancer of the womb
  • To remove growths in the uterus such as polyps (small growths on the uterine lining), fibroids, adhesions or scar tissue within the womb

BOOK AN APPOINTMENT

The consultant inserts an instrument called a hysteroscope (a small tube with a telescope) into the womb through the vagina to take a closer look.
Symptoms of womb problems include:

  • Pain in the pelvis
  • Unusual discharge from the vagina
  • Repeated or unexplained miscarriage
  • Failure to conceive
  • Heavy or irregular bleeding not controllable by medication
  • Bleeding between periods
  • Bleeding after menopause
  • Irregular bleeding while on hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
