Most women with menstrual disorders will not require a diagnostic hysteroscopy. However, there are situations that you and your physician will discuss in which a diagnostic hysteroscopy can help you decide what treatment is best for you. Diagnostic hysteroscopies are carried out in our Rochester, NY-area office under intravenous conscious sedation (unless you request otherwise).
During a diagnostic hysteroscopy, a lit telescope is passed into the uterus in order to look inside the uterine cavity. It’s usually done when the ultrasound exam is abnormal and the physician needs further information that will help him or her decide how best to manage your particular issue.
