Hysteroscopy procedure

Hysteroscopy is a short gynecological procedure in which a thin camera is gently inserted through the vagina and cervix into the uterine cavity. The development of this technique is on the rise especially in recent years, thanks to the improvement and miniaturization of optics and cameras, as well as its affordability.

It is recommended to perform the procedure when the endometrium is the lowest. Naturally, it is just after menstruation or the endometrium is prepared for examination with the help of hormones that limit its growth.

According to the range of performance and difficulty, we distinguish between surgical and diagnostic hysteroscopy.

DIAGNOSTIC HYSTEROSCOPY

Diagnostic hysteroscopy is used to diagnose problems of the uterus or to confirm results of other tests (polyps, deformities, developmental defects of the uterus, septum, etc.).

SURGICAL HYSTEROSCOPY

It enables the removal or correction of issues found during the diagnostic hysteroscopy (resection of polyps or small fibroids, disruption of adhesions, etc.)

WHEN IS HYSTEROSCOPY SUITABLE?

  • In case of abnormal uterine bleeding
  • Upon investigation of an abnormal ultrasound finding
  • For problems with painful menstruation
  • In case of infertility due to uterine factors
  • In case of infertility (inability to deliver a child)
  • In the localization, extraction and reposition of the intrauterine device
  • When checking after procedure on the uterus
  • When removing residues after childbirth or abortion

How is hysteroscopy performed?


Think of the procedure as a routine gynaecological examination. At the beginning, disinfection is performed and the doctor introduces gynecological mirrors.

The hysteroscope is inserted through your 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 your doctor to see your 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.

The time it takes to perform hysteroscopy can range from less than five minutes to 30 minutes. The length of the procedure depends on whether it is diagnostic or operative and whether an additional procedure, such as laparoscopy, is done at the same time. In general, however, diagnostic hysteroscopy takes less time than operative.

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 - eg Paracetamol tablets, Algifen drops) are usually enough to relieve these pains. It is possible to recommend using them before the procedure and thus ensure the duration of their effect 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, skip bathing or swimming and 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 their doctor if they bleed excessively or experience symptoms of infection, such as convulsions, fever, chills, and so on, within a few hours to days after the procedure.

HOW LONG AFTER A HYSTEROSCOPY CAN I TRAVEL?

The procedure is short, 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 is very well tolerated.
