Hysteroscopy

Hysteroscopy is a procedure used to look inside your womb. A gynaecologist passes a camera in a thin tube through your cervix. No cuts are needed and you are usually awake to have it done.

A hysteroscopy is used to investigate abnormal bleeding or periods and sometimes for problems with infertility.

Canterbury DHB has produced a patient information pamphlet with more information about hysteroscopy.
