A hysteroscopy is a procedure in which doctor inserts a small-diameter device into the uterus. This device has a light and a small camera on the end to allow the doctor to see inside the uterus. There are a number of situations in which your doctor may recommend this procedure. It can be used for either surgical or diagnostic purposes. It may be used:
The doctor will first spread the cervix with a tool called a speculum. This is also like what happens during a gynecological exam. The doctor will then insert the hysteroscopy device in through vaginal opening.
