Hysteroscopy is a short gynaecological procedure in which a thin camera is gently inserted through the vagina and cervix into the uterine cavity.
Appointments for hysteroscopy are usually available within 3-4 weeks.We newly use the narrowest HYSTEROSCOPE IN THE WORLD
By comparison, the diameter of this device is as thin as an ordinary skewer. This makes it possible to perform very gentle procedures even on non-parturient or elderly women (after 60 years of age).
It is recommended to perform the procedure when the endometrium is at the lowest, ideally within 10 days after your menstruation. Optimal timing can be achieved with single-phase hormonal contraception without omission or gestagen preparation.
According to the range of performance and difficulty, we distinguish between surgical and diagnostic hysteroscopy.
You will be treated by one of the following doctors:
Leopold Rotter, MD, PhD
chief physician and professional guarantor of the clinic practice since 1999, expert colposcopy licence

How is hysteroscopy performed?
Think of the procedure as a routine gynaecological examination. At the beginning, disinfection is performed and the doctor introduces gyneacological mirror.
The hysteroscope is inserted through the vagina and cervix into the uterus.
The sterile liquid solution is then inserted into the uterus, through the hysteroscope, to expand it and to clear away any blood or mucus.
Hysteroscope allows the doctor to see the uterus and the openings of the fallopian tubes into the uterine cavity.
Finally, if surgery needs to be performed, small instruments are inserted into the uterus through the hysteroscope.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER HYSTEROSCOPY?
Patients usually feel a slight pressure in the lower abdomen after the procedure, but it subsides before leaving the surgery. Also, minor bleeding that does not exceed the rate of menstrual bleeding stops in a day or two after hysteroscopy. Weak analgesics (pain medications) are usually sufficient to relieve any pain. It is possible to recommend using them before the procedure to ensure their effect lasts during and after hysteroscopy.
After the procedure, most patients can resume normal activity at work or at home the following day after the procedure. To minimize the risk of inflammation or infection, it is recommended to only shower, avoid bathing or swimming, and not use tampons for about a week. Patients who have undergone diagnostic hysteroscopy are advised to avoid sexual intercourse for one to two days after the end of bleeding. After operative hysteroscopy, the postoperative regimen is extended for up to three weeks, depending on the extent and type of procedure performed.
Although complications after hysteroscopy are rare, the patient should contact her doctor if she is bleeding excessively or experiences symptoms of infection, such as convulsions, fever, chills, and so on, within a few hours to days after the procedure.
HOW SOON AFTER A HYSTEROSCOPY CAN I TRAVEL?The procedure is short, it lasts 5-15 minutes. You are released from our clinic about 2 hours after the procedure. It is usually not a problem to travel within a few hours after the procedure and it is very well tolerated.
