What is a Diagnostic Hysteroscopy?
Diagnostic hysteroscopy is a diagnostic aid primarily used to diagnose problems of the uterus. Diagnostic hysteroscopy is also used to confirm other test results.
What are the Indications for a Diagnostic Hysteroscopy?
The remarkable progress made and the relative simplicity of the technique have widened the indications for hysteroscopy.
- For confirmation of other test results.
- To aid in the removal of uterine fibroids and polyps.
- In conjunction with a laparoscopic procedure
- Before dilation and curettage procedure
- To discover any malformation of the uterus.
- To diagnose infertility
- To evaluate abnormal uterine bleeding.
- To diagnose endometrial hyperplasia
What is the procedure of diagnostic hysteroscopy?
The procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia.
- The doctor will first prop(widen) the cervix with an instrument called a speculum.
- The doctor will then insert a hysteroscope into your uterus through your vagina. The doctor moves the hysteroscope along the walls of the uterus.
- Carbon dioxide gas will be sent into your uterus to clear the surface and help widen it slightly; this helps in better visualization.
- The light and camera at the end of the hysteroscope allow the doctor to see the uterus and fallopian tubes. This will enable them to diagnose any issues or to perform any surgical procedures necessary.
Recovery after Diagnostic Hysteroscopy:
The purpose of diagnostic hysteroscopy will determine the time required for recovery. However, you may experience the following symptoms:
- Abdominal cramps
- Slight bleeding for a day or two days
- Shoulder pain-if carbon dioxide gas was used during hysteroscopy.
- Nausea and vomiting
You can eat or drink immediately following the hysteroscopy.
If just local anesthesia, then you’ll typically leave the hospital in less than an hour.
In some cases, your doctor may prescribe pain medication. Follow your doctor’s instructions for recovery.
