Hysteroscopy is an extremely modern application used for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. There are two different types of this application. The first of these is office hysteroscopy and the other is operative hysteroscopy. Office hysteroscopy is used to detect uterine-related health problems and to investigate the progression of diseases. Mentioned health problems include menstrual irregularity, infertility, recurrent miscarriages and intrauterine adhesions. Operative hysteroscopy, on the other hand, is preferred in order to remove masses such as uterine fibroids and polyps under the guidance of closed surgical techniques. This procedure is performed vaginally, that is, if it is used for surgical purposes, there is not even the slightest trace of suture in the patient’s abdomen.

- Office Hysteroscopy: Office hysteroscopy is widely used in the diagnosis of gynaecological diseases and in the examination of organs such as the uterus.

How long does a Hysteroscopy take?
Office hysteroscopy is much faster as it is performed for diagnostic purposes. It usually ends within 10 minutes. Operative hysteroscopy, on the other hand, may take longer because it is performed for treatment purposes and is performed with anaesthesia. Operative hysteroscopy usually ends within half an hour.
How is Hysteroscopy performed?
Office hysteroscopy is usually performed without anaesthesia. During this application, the patient is given a suitable position. The genital area and its surroundings are cleaned with an antiseptic solution. The vaginal walls are opened and the micro-camera of the hysteroscopy device is directed to the uterus with the help of a cannula (thin tube). Thanks to this camera, the doctor can conduct detailed investigations inside the uterus and fallopian tubes. If surgical applications are planned to accompany the procedure, local or general anaesthesia can be applied depending on the scope of the procedures to be performed. During the application, the doctor intervenes in the target area with the help of microsurgical devices. After the procedures are completed, the application ends without the need for any stitches.
What is the recovery process after Hysteroscopy?
Women who have had hysteroscopy are usually hospitalized for a few hours. Then they are discharged. If hysteroscopy surgery has been performed, patients recover greatly within a week. However, full recovery after hysteroscopy surgery may take longer.

- If surgical procedures were applied during the application, care should be taken to rest for a while.
