What is a hysteroscopy?
A hysteroscopy is a procedure that allows your physician to examine your uterus through a hysteroscope, a thin tube that is inserted into the vagina. During the procedure, your gynecologist can immediately remove polyps or other small anomalies.
To examine the inside of the uterus, your gynecologist will pump fluids into the uterus through the hysteroscope, which will make it easier to see. The hysteroscope is usually connected to a camera, so you can view the procedure on a screen.
Your gynecologist will discuss the results with your practicing physician. You will receive your results during your next visit to the Netherlands Cancer Institute.
