Montgomery County’s OB-GYN, Dr. Rania IBrahim, will perform an hysteroscopy to inspect the lining of your uterus using a thin tool called a hysteroscope, which has a light and camera attached to it.
To perform the procedure, she inserts the tip of the hysteroscope into your vagina and gently enters the uterus via the cervix to view the lining of the uterus (endometrium) on a TV screen.
Your OB-GYN may also collect a small sample of tissue (biopsy) from the uterus for further examination. If you are suffering from infertility, another surgery called a laparoscopy, may be performed at the same time as a hysteroscopy.
A hysteroscopy is typically performed to:
- Identify the source of severe cramping and/or abnormal bleeding;
- Determine if an abnormality in the shape or size of the uterus is causing infertility;
- View the uterine openings to the fallopian tubes to check for blockage;
- Identify the reason for repeated miscarriages;
- Locate and take out a lost intrauterine device (IUD);
- Locate and remove small fibroids, polyps or other uterine growths;
- Test for endometrial cancer;
- Eliminate any problem areas found in the lining of the uterus;
- Insert a contraceptive implant (such as Essure) as a method of permanent sterilization.
Talk to your doctor about any concerns you have regarding the need for the hysteroscopy, any risks involved, how it will be performed, or what the results will determine.
