Hysterscopy & Polypectomy

What are Hysterscopy & Polypectomy?

Hysteroscopy is a procedure used to look at the inside of the uterus to identify any abnormalities such as endometrial polyps, fibroids, or adhesions. Often a biopsy of the lining of the womb is taken (generally known as a curette) and sent to the pathologists for histological examination.

 

Hysteroscopies are often performed in women:

  • With subfertility to check for any anatomical abnormalities that might be delaying conception

  • Older with heavy menstrual bleeding

  • Women with post menopausal bleeding

 

The procedure is generally performed under a quick general anaesthetic. There are no cuts or stitches required.
