Understanding Women's Health with Hysteroscopy

A hysteroscopy is a crucial procedure that provides valuable insights into women’s health concerns. At Bloom Women’s Health, we prioritise your well-being and offer comprehensive hysteroscopy services to address your indivdidual health needs.

What is Hysteroscopy?

A hysteroscopy is a diagnostic and therapeutic procedure that involves the examination of the uterus or womb using a hysteroscope (a thin, lighted tube). The hysteroscope is connected to a light and camera, which sends images to a monitor so that your gynaecologist is able to see inside the uterus. This procedure allows our experienced gynaecologists to clearly visualise the inside of the uterus, identify abnormalities, and diagnose or treat various women’s health concerns.

Common reasons for having a hysteroscopy include: 

Hysteroscopy Procedure: Exploring the Details

The hysteroscopy procedure is conducted with precision and care. You will be given a local anaesthetic, or in some cases a general anaesthetic. During the procedure, a hysteroscope is gently inserted through the cervix into the uterus. This allows our medical team to examine the uterus for issues such as polyps, fibroids, adhesions, or other abnormalities that may impact your health.

A hysteroscopy is generally a simple procedure which is usually carried out as a day case procedure, meaning that you need not stay in hospital overnight.

Hysteroscopy Surgery: Tailored to Your Needs

In some cases, conditions of the uterus can be treated during the hysteroscopy. Our skilled gynecologists at Bloom Women’s Health are experienced in performing hysteroscopy surgeries, ensuring personalised and effective care for each patient.

Hysteroscopy Biopsy: A Diagnostic Tool

In some cases, a hysteroscopy may include a biopsy, allowing our medical team to gather tissue samples for further examination. This diagnostic tool aids in accurate assessments and helps determine the most appropriate course of action for your health.

For more information about hysterocopy, you can download a patient factsheet from the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.
