Hysteroscopy is used to identify and treat uterine disorders. A hysteroscopy is a long, thin, illuminated equipment introduced into the uterus through the vaginal canal. It also displays an image of the uterus on a screen, allowing the fertility doctor to examine it.
The examination of the uterus cavity with hysteroscopy enables the identification and treatment of various uterine disorders. Some of which may cause fertility issues. In most cases, unsuccessful IVF attempts are due to problems in the embryo, such as genetic disorders or other difficulties with the woman’s uterus. Several fertility clinics have previously performed hysteroscopy on women who have had failed IVF cycles to look for uterine growths or scar tissues and remove them.
Other non-invasive means of examining the uterine cavity include hysterosonography (HSN), which involves putting a small amount of saltwater into the uterus and then performing an ultrasound to assess the uterus.
Before beginning IVF treatment, a hysteroscopy is recommended. You won’t always be given one, but keep insisting on having one. A hysteroscopy is the most effective approach to determine whether your womb is healthy and capable of carrying a baby.
