Written by FoundHealth.

Reasons for Procedure

Hysteroscopy is done for:

  • Diagnostic reasons—to examine the inner uterus to identify problems or abnormalities; may be done if you have:
  • Repeated miscarriage
  • Infertility
  • An abnormal Pap test
  • Abnormal or postmenopausal uterine bleeding
  • Therapeutic reasons—to correct anatomic problems and defects in the uterus; may be done for:
  • Endometrial ablation —removal of uterine lining from the uterus
  • Myomectomy —removal of fibrous or muscular tissue (fibroids)
  • Removal of polyps (usually noncancerous)
  • Removal of intrauterine devices (IUDs)

The result of the hysteroscopy depends on the reason for the procedure. In some cases, the doctor may be able to treat a condition right away. In other cases, you may need further surgery or other treatment.
