A hysteroscopy is a test that lets your doctor examine the inside walls of your uterus.
Having an abnormality in your uterus can reduce your chances for pregnancy. Hysteroscopy is a test that uses sterile salt water and a tiny telescope to visualize the inside of your uterus. The test can detect scar tissue, polyps, fibroids, and any uterine abnormality such as a septate uterus, that may prevent an embryo from implanting properly.
What to expect during the hysteroscopy
Hysteroscopy is usually done in our office and takes about 30 minutes. A speculum is inserted into the vagina (like when you have a Pap smear). A local anesthetic is then given, and then a tiny telescope with a camera is placed through your cervix into the uterine cavity. Sterile salt water is instilled into the uterus to distend the uterine cavity allowing visualization of the inside of the cavity.
