A Hysteroscopy is an in-office procedure where your doctor uses a device called a hysteroscope to look inside your uterus to determine the cause of abnormal bleeding. During the procedure your cervix is dilated, and the hysteroscope is inserted into your uterus through the opening in the cervix. The instrument will then fill your uterus with gas or liquid to expand it and to facilitate visibility. Using a light, your doctor will then be able to see the structures inside the uterus and the openings to the Fallopian tubes.
If surgery needs to be done at this time, hysteroscopic surgical procedures can be performed.
