Sparsha Infertility Centre | Hysteroscopy


Through Hysteroscopy the doctor is able to look inside the uterus and diagnose and treat the causes of abnormal bleeding. A Hysteroscope, which is a thin, lighted tube is used for hysteroscopy. The Hysteroscope is inserted into the vagina to examine the inside of the uterus and the cervix.

Why is the Procedure required?

Hysteroscopy enables the doctor to look into the cervix and inside the uterus. If any abnormality is found, they can take a sample for more testing.
The most common reason for a hysteroscopy, are longer or heavier than normal periods or bleeding between two periods.
Hysteroscopy might also be needed under these situations:
  • Abnormal Pap test results.
  • Bleeding after menopause.
  • Fibroids, polyps, or scarring on the uterus.
  • More than one miscarriage or problems in getting pregnant.
  • A small tissue sample of the lining of the uterus is needed by the doctor.
  • A sterilization procedure is taken as a permanent form of birth control.
  • IUD is out of place.

How is Hysteroscopy Done?

Hysteroscopy can be done in a hospital / clinic or at home. Use of general anaesthesia is common during the procedure. Dilators are used to help open the cervix.

Doctor may use a tool called a speculum to keep the vagina open.

A hysteroscope is inserted through the cervix into the uterus and saline is passed through the hysteroscope into the uterus to expand it. This gives a clear view of the lining and the opening of the fallopian tubes.
