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


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)
