Posted on Updated on

A procedure used to diagnose abnormal bleeding or bleeding after menopause or infertility or to remove fibroids or polyps.A small scope is passed through the cervical opening and then the uterine cavity is filled with gas or fluid so the internal surface of the uterus (endometrial cavity) can be seen. This can be used to identify fibroids or polyps in the uterus and to direct their removal if needed. Hysteroscopy is normally done along with D&C.
