Diagnostic hysteroscopy

Diagnostic hysteroscopy

A procedure where a small camera is inserted through the cervix and into the uterine cavity, to hopefully make a diagnosis and get you some answers. It’s usually performed under anesthesia in your doctor’s office or operating room, so while the procedure usually only lasts about 20 minutes or so, you’ll be knocked out. Carbon dioxide gas or a liquid will be injected to distend the cavity and allow direct visualization of its structure.
