Hysteroscopy

Hysteroscopy is used to examine the inside of the womb/uterus. It is carried out using a hysteroscope with a narrow telescope and a lighted camera at the end. Images are sent to the monitor so the doctor can examine the uterus. The hysteroscope is passed into the womb through the vagina and cervix which mean there are no incisions on the body. Hysteroscopy is used for investigating problems like pelvic pain, heavy bleeding, firbroids and for removing IUDs etc.
