Hysteroscopy

Hysteroscopy

Hysteroscopy means looking inside the uterus.  This can be done for diagnosis and for treatment.  Dr. Schapiro will give you a paracervical block of lidocaine and then insert a small tube with a camera through your cervix and into your uterus.  This might be done to find a missing or trapped IUD or to diagnose polyps or fibroids in the uterine lining.  If you have polyps or fibroids, you will probably need a procedure in the hospital for their removal.
