Under the care of Dr. Myran

Dr. Myran’s help center:

What is Hysteroscopy? – Hysteroscopy is a minor procedure that helps Dr. Myran look inside the uterus to help asses, diagnose or treat infertility problems for patients experiencing heavy periods, abnormal vaginal bleeding, fibroids and polyps.

Using a hysteroscope – A hysteroscope is a thin, telescope-like device that is inserted into the uterus through the vagina and cervix. A sample of the lining is often taken to be sent off for further examination. This procedure does not involve any incisions to the abdomen and takes about 10-15 minutes but recovery can be a number of hours. The procedure is performed under local or general anaesthesia.

 

What can you expect

Hysteroscopy is a minor procedure that may be done in Dr. Myran’s clinic or in a hospital.

After the procedure, you may experience:

Note – Most symptoms of hysteroscopy surgery resolve within one or two days – if not, see your doctor.
