What is a Hysteroscopy?


A hysteroscopy is a procedure that allows your doctor to look at the lining of your uterus. Your doctor inserts a thin viewing tool called a hysteroscope which has a small light and camera attached, allowing your doctor to see the lining of the uterus (endometrium) on a video screen. A hysteroscopy is usually performed to find the cause of heavy bleeding or uterine bleeding that occurs after menopause. It also may be done to see if a problem in your uterus is preventing you from becoming pregnant. A hysteroscopy can also be used to remove growths in the uterus, such as fibroids or polyps.
