How

How is the procedure performed?

The uterus is filled with a clear fluid (saline) and clear views of the uterus obtained. Polyps and fibroids may be removed, IUDs placed (or removed), the endometrium ablated, or a septum resected.

Generally, a hysteroscopy is a day-case procedure, meaning the patient goes home the same day. Depending on the case and the patient, it may be performed under general anaesthetic (asleep), under light sedation, or awake using a local anaesthetic (office procedure).
