Office hysteroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure used to examine the inside of the uterus. This procedure is performed in the gynecologist’s office, making it more convenient for patients compared to a traditional hysteroscopy, which is done in the operating room.

During the procedure, a thin, lighted tube called a hysteroscope is inserted through the cervix and into the uterus. The hysteroscope has a camera attached to it, which allows us to view the inside of the uterus on a monitor. We can detect any abnormalities such as fibroid tumors, polyps, or adhesions, and perform a biopsy.
The procedure is done under oral anesthesia and patients can expect to experience some cramping during the procedure. Most patients can resume their normal activities the same day.
Office hysteroscopy can also be used as a diagnostic tool in cases of abnormal bleeding or infertility. If a problem is detected during the procedure, it may be possible to treat it at the same time using specialized instruments passed through the hysteroscope.
The procedure has high diagnostic value and is known for providing detailed information and high accuracy. The best part is that the procedure is done without much pain, low risk, and with a quick recovery time.
It is important to note that office hysteroscopy might not be recommended for everyone.
Overall, office hysteroscopy is a safe and effective way for us to examine the inside of the uterus and detect any abnormalities. It is also a great option for patients who want a convenient, minimally invasive procedure with a quick recovery time. If you have any concerns or are experiencing symptoms such as abnormal bleeding or infertility, be sure to make an appointment to discuss if an office hysteroscopy is right for you.
