If a uterine abnormality is suspected following the hysterosalpingogram, your doctor may recommend hysteroscopy. Hysteroscopy is performed with a thin telescope, called a hysteroscope, equipped with a fiber optic light. The hysteroscope is inserted through the cervix into the uterus and enables the doctor to see any uterine abnormalities or growths. Photographs or videotape may be taken for future reference. This procedure is usually performed in the early half of a woman’s cycle so that the build-up of the endometrium does not obscure the doctor’s view. This procedure is usually performed on an out-patient basis with moderate sedation being used. Full recovery of the patient occurs within days.
