Another minimally invasive technique that uses a small camera to look inside the uterus. This does not require any incision or operation on your belly and is done under general anesthesia. Hysteroscopy can detect uterine polyps, scar tissue, and fibroids that involve the lining of the uterus. These can prevent pregnancy as well as predispose to miscarriage. It can be diagnostic as well as therapeutic.
 
This is truly a minimally invasive technique, usually minimal to no disruption in your schedule other than the day of the procedure. It is useful for many women with a variety of problems from abnormal bleeding to infertility to recurrent pregnancy losses. The procedure must be timed to coincide with a certain time in your menstrual cycle to allow your physician to have adequate visualization of your uterus.
