Hysteroscopy
 
What is involved?

The hysteroscopy entails placing a speculum in the vagina to allow access to the cervix. The vagina will be cleansed with an antibacterial solution. The flexible hysteroscope will then be channeled through the cervical canal. Small amounts of carbon dioxide gas or saline will be used as distending media to better visualize the uterine cavity. Occasionally, a grasping instrument is used on the cervix to immobilize it and straighten the cervical canal - local anesthesia is then utilized to minimize your discomfort.

After the procedure, the instruments will be removed. If necessary, a tampon may be placed in the vagina to contain the small amount of bleeding related to grasping of the cervix. You will be asked to rest for 15 minutes prior to leaving.
