Hysteroscopy is an in-office procedure that is most commonly used to evaluate the source of abnormal uterine bleeding. This procedure is usually done using light sedation in the office. Once you are comfortable, a thin, lighted telescope-like device is placed through the cervix and into the uterus allowing for visualization of the inside of the uterus. Often this procedure is done in combination with dilation and curettage (D&C) in order to treat the bleeding as well. This procedure has a quick recovery time with most patients returning to routine activity the next day.
