Hysteroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that helps examine and treat uterine issues. It is also used to perform different gynecological therapeutic procedures - such as polyps or fibroids removal. It also helps healthcare professionals with biopsies or placing contraceptive devices inside the womb. 

The surgical procedure compared to other similar gynecological procedures is beneficial, as it helps patient recovery in a short span of time. It also causes minimum scarring and few complications if compared to open uterine surgical treatment.  

What is the cost of Hysteroscopy?

The cost of a Hysteroscopy in Pakistan ranges between 80,000 - 1,50,000 PKR. However, this cost varies depending on the patient’s health condition, location, doctor’s fee, and other medical expenses. 

What diagnosis leads to Hysteroscopy?

If your healthcare provider diagnoses the following health conditions, he may refer you to Hysteroscopy:

  • Uterine fibroids or polyps that may or may not cause lower abdominal pain

  • Abnormal uterine bleeding - such as heavy menstruation

  • Uterine tissue scarring or Asherman's syndrome

  • Endometrial cancer

  • Infertility

What is the procedure for Hysteroscopy?

Once the exact health condition of a patient is diagnosed, the gynecologist performing the surgical procedure will follow these steps:

  • The doctor begins the surgical procedure by giving local anesthesia. This makes the patient unconscious and he doesn't feel pain and discomfort during the surgical treatment.

  • The surgeon begins the procedure by opening the cervix through the dilator. 

  • After dilating the cervix, the surgeon inserts a speculum into the patient’s vagina to visualize the cervix.

  • A thin, lighted tube with a camera at the end called Hysteroscope is then inserted into the cervix and then into the uterus. 

  • During the surgical intervention, the surgeon may use carbon dioxide gas or a liquid solution for the dilation of the uterine cavity. This is done for better visualization.

  • By viewing the inner cervix, the surgeon examines the uterine lining for any abnormal growth or scarring. If any abnormality requiring surgical treatment is found, your surgeon can perform surgical procedures - like biopsy.

  • Once the surgical procedure is successfully performed, your surgeon will remove the hysteroscope. 

What are the risks & complications associated with Hysteroscopy?

Hysteroscopy is usually considered a safe surgical procedure. However, it may have some potential risks and complications including:

  • Patients may experience minor bleeding - especially if any surgical procedure is performed after the hysteroscopic examination. 

  • During medical procedures, blood clots in the uterine wall may occur due to the blood vessel damage caused by the hysteroscopic tube. 

  • If surgical treatment is performed during uterine infection, the symptoms of infection may aggravate.

  • Fluids used during the surgical procedure may immediately get absorbed into your bloodstream. This absorption causes organ damage. 

What to expect after Hysteroscopy?

After having the surgical procedure, patients may expect the following conditions:

  • Your healthcare provider can schedule weekly or monthly follow-ups to examine the treated organ and evaluate healing.

  • Bleeding after surgery is usually normal and may continue for 2-3 days. However, if you experience heavy bleeding, seek medical attention at your earliest possible.

  • Mild cramps or lower abdominal discomfort is normal. These symptoms can be diminished with the help of over-the-counter medication. 

  • During hysteroscopy, if any surgical treatment is given, your gynecologist can advise you to refrain from lifting heavy objects or strenuous exercises.
