Hysteroscopy

A narrow tube with a telescope at the end is inserted into the uterus under local or general anaesthetic, sending images to a computer to give a close-up of the womb. This helps with diagnosis of a range of issues, including irregular bleed, heavy period, inter-menstrual and post coital bleed. During hysteroscopy: endometrial biopsy (biopsy of womb lining), cervical and endometrial polypectomy (removing cervical and womb polyp) and replacement of displaced Coil could be performed. It also helps to assess womb cavity for further management.
