Problems in the lining of your uterus can manifest in different ways, including abnormal bleeding, bleeding after menopause, and infertility. Address these conditions before they lead to further complications by visiting Montgomery Fertility Center for a hysteroscopy procedure. Maryland patients turn to us because we use state-of-the-art hysteroscopes and other medical equipment to identify, diagnose, and treat uterine abnormalities.
Our hysteroscopy specialist can also diagnose and remove fibroids and polyps. In addition, they are highly skilled at finding and repositioning intrauterine devices.
The procedure begins by putting you under general or local anesthesia to help you relax and prevent any potential discomfort. Your doctor will insert the hysteroscope into your vagina and through the cervix until it reaches the uterus. The tool projects an image onto a display screen so the doctor can closely inspect the uterine lining.
Any polyps will be carefully cut and removed using a surgical device. The doctor may also take a small tissue sample under a microscope. Please note that it is normal to experience cramping or vaginal discharge after the procedure.
A hysteroscopy is a simple and safe procedure; however, it is not recommended for everyone. It should only be performed if a doctor specifically recommends it. Contact us for more information about hysteroscopies or to schedule an appointment.
