A hysteroscopy uses a hysteroscope to view the inside of a woman’s uterus. A hysteroscope is a long, thin telescope with a camera on the end. Other small, surgical tools may also be inserted into the uterus through the hysteroscope.
We may perform hysteroscopy to correct the following uterine conditions:
We may recommend scheduling the hysteroscopy for the first week after your menstrual period. This timing will provide the doctor with the best view of the inside of your uterus. Hysteroscopy is also performed to determine the cause of unexplained bleeding or spotting in postmenopausal women.
Although there are many benefits associated with hysteroscopy, it may not be appropriate for some patients. At Women’s Healthcare of Georgia we specialize in this procedure and will consult with your primary care physician to determine whether this procedure is appropriate for you.
