Hysteroscopy in Canada

Hysteroscopy is a medical procedure that allows doctors to examine the inside of a woman's uterus using a thin, lighted tube called a hysteroscope. This procedure is typically performed in an outpatient setting.

When Is Hysteroscopy Recommended?

By placing a small, telescope-like device through the cervix into the uterus, a hysteroscopy enables your physician to see into the uterine cavity with clarity and provides him or her with a means to surgically treat any abnormalities. Hysteroscopy may be recommended for various diagnostic and therapeutic purposes, including:

  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Unexplained pelvic pain
  • Recurrent miscarriages
  • Uterine-related infertility
  • Investigating abnormal pap smear results
  • Removing polyps or fibroids

The specific reasons for recommending a hysteroscopy and the timing of the procedure ultimately depends on the individual's symptoms, medical history, and the doctor's assessment.
