Hysterscopy & Polypectomy
About 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.
