A hysteroscopy is a test and treatment method that allows for an examination of the uterine cavity from the inside.
During the examination, a 4.5 mm hysteroscope is inserted through the cervix. Due to the small diameter of the device, it passes through the cervix without causing any major discomfort. With an ambulatory hysteroscopy, no painkillers or only a small amount will be required. You may eat and drink as normal before the procedure.
– Detection of the causes for uterine bleeding;
– Detection of the possible causes of infertility;
– Evaluation of the effects of a surgical treatment or treatment with pharmaceuticals;
– Evaluation of the possible scope of a surgery;
– Confirmation of the presence of a suspected polyp in the uterine cavity.

Possible activities during the procedure:
– Collection of a sample piece of tissue from the lining of the uterus;
– Removal of smaller polyps;
– Removal of intrauterine adhesions;
– Removal of an intrauterine septum or a foreign body (e.g. part of an intrauterine device);
– Refitting of an incorrectly positioned intrauterine device.


The patient will be allowed to go home after an ambulatory hysteroscopy.
There may be a bloody vaginal discharge for a few days after the procedure.
