Hysteroscopy Turkey

A hysteroscopy is a minimally invasive surgery that requires the insertion of a tiny telescope through the cervix into the uterus. This allows the surgeon to see the inside of the uterine cavity on a monitor and inspect it for any abnormalities.  Book a consultation online or speak to a gynaecologist via WhatsApp +44 7985 146891


A hysteroscopy is a minimally invasive diagnostic procedure that requires the use of a slender telescope-like device to gain access to the inner lining of the uterus. The instrument is known as a hysteroscope and is inserted through the cervix and into the uterus. Once in place, the device allows the surgeon to view the interior of the uterus on a monitor and inspect it for any abnormalities, such as the shape of the uterus, the lining of the uterus, and any blockages or evidence of any issues. Moreover, the surgeon may also take a look at the opening of the fallopian tubes.

The procedure begins with a local anaesthetic block of the cervix to provide pain relief and a sugar or salt solution to distend the uterus so that the hysteroscope can easily gain a clear view. After the inspection of the uterine cavity is finished, different instrument may be used to treat certain conditions such as polyps, fibroids, or heavy menstrual bleeding.

Hysteroscopy Step by Step Process

Prior to the procedure, your doctor may prescribe a sedative to help you relax. You will then be prepared for anesthesia. The procedure itself takes place in the following order:

Step 1

To perform a hysteroscopy, your cervix is gently dilated to allow for the insertion of a hysteroscope, which is a thin, lighted tube.

Step 2

Once the hysteroscope is in place, your doctor can view the inside of your uterus on a monitor. They may also use a fluid, such as saline solution, to expand your uterus for better visibility.

Step 3

The hysteroscope allows your doctor to examine the walls of your uterus and check for any abnormalities or potential issues, such as fibroids, polyps or scar tissue.

Step 4

If necessary, small surgical instruments can be passed through the hysteroscope to remove polyps, fibroids, or other tissue abnormalities. Depending on the complexity of the procedure, a hysteroscopy may take 30 minutes to an hour, and you should be able to go home the same day.

Step 5

After the procedure, you may experience mild cramping or vaginal bleeding. However, most women can resume normal activities the next day. Your doctor will provide you with specific instructions and follow-up care to ensure a full recovery.

The time it takes to perform hysteroscopy can range from less than five minutes to more than an hour. The length of the procedure depends on whether it is diagnostic or operative and whether an additional procedure, such as laparoscopy, is done at the same time. In general, however, diagnostic hysteroscopy takes less time than operative.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of hysteroscopy?

Compared with other, more invasive procedures, hysteroscopy may provide the following advantages:

  • Shorter hospital stay.
  • Shorter recovery time.
  • Less pain medication needed after surgery.
  • Avoidance of hysterectomy.
  • Possible avoidance of “open” abdominal surgery
How safe is hysteroscopy?

Hysteroscopy is generally safe, with complications occurring in less than 1% of cases. These risks include those associated with the anaesthesia, infection, heavy bleeding, injury to the cervix, uterus, bowel, or bladder, intrauterine scarring, and a reaction to the substance used to expand the uterus.

What can I expect after hysteroscopy?

After the procedure, you may experience cramping or slight vaginal bleeding for one to two days, and you may also feel shoulder pain if gas was used during the hysteroscopy. You may also feel somewhat faint or sick. However, if you experience any of the following symptoms, be sure to contact your doctor: fever, severe abdominal pain, or heavy vaginal bleeding or discharge.

Will I have to stay in the hospital overnight after hysteroscopy?

Most of the time, hysteroscopy does not require an overnight stay in the hospital. However, in certain circumstances (such as if your doctor is concerned about your reaction to anaesthesia), an overnight stay may be necessary.
