A hysteroscopy is a procedure in which your doctor inserts a small-diameter device into your uterus. This device has a light and a small camera on the end to allow the doctor to see inside your uterus.
Hysteroscopy may be used to both diagnose and treat specific conditions of the uterine cavity. Common problems that can be treated by hysteroscopy include:
Diagnosing and treating abnormal uterine bleeding
Investigation of infertility.
The treatment of scar tissue in the uterus (Asherman syndrome).
Removal of fibroids or polyps.
Endometrial ablation (a treatment where the uterine lining is removed due to heavy periods)
Treatment of uterine Congenital abnormalities.
