Hysteroscopy is a surgical procedure to detect the presence of any fibroids or cysts in the lining of the uterus. In Hysteroscopy surgery, the infertility specialist uses a tool named hysteroscope to view the internal cavity and organs. This tool is a type of endoscope with a long hollow tube that has a camera attached to its end. This enables the infertility specialty to view the cervix, uterine cavity and to inspect the presence of any abnormalities or infection in the reproductive system of the body. Hysteroscopy is used to treat many abnormalities that cause infertility. Hence hysteroscopy is a part of most of the Infertility treatments available at Hegde fertility center.
The hysteroscopy procedure, in Hegde Fertility, is performed after the menstrual cycle. During this period the uterine lining is relatively thin. The surgery begins with a general anesthetic and meditation is provided for relaxing the pelvic muscles. The surgeon introduces a speculum to open the vaginal walls and the cervix. Then a hysteroscopy is placed at the entrance of the vagina and pushed inside through the cervix to reach the uterus. The infertility specialist views the lining of the uterine cavity to diagnose or detect the presence of any fibroids, cysts or infections. This procedure takes around 30 minutes and patients can leave the hospital on the same day and can resume to daily activities within a week. After the procedure, the patient may experience minor bleeding.
