Common Conditions and Diagnostic Benefits

Hysteroscopy can help diagnose and evaluate conditions such as abnormal uterine bleeding, polyps, fibroids, uterine adhesions, uterine septum, and certain fertility issues. It allows for a direct visualization of the uterine lining, enabling healthcare professionals to identify abnormalities, collect tissue samples for further testing (biopsy), and guide subsequent treatment decisions. Early detection and accurate diagnosis through hysteroscopy facilitate timely intervention and improve overall gynecologic health.

 

Benefits and Potential Outcomes

Hysteroscopy offers several benefits for women’s health. It is a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed on an outpatient basis, often avoiding the need for open surgery. The benefits include precise diagnosis, targeted treatment, reduced recovery time, and improved fertility outcomes in certain cases. By addressing underlying conditions, hysteroscopy can alleviate symptoms, restore reproductive health, and enhance overall well-being.

Hysteroscopy Procedure

(Before, During and After)

Before:

Prior to a hysteroscopy, a comprehensive evaluation and consultation with Dr. Adeeb AlShahrour at the Women’s Health Center of Chicago will be conducted. This involves discussing your medical history, symptoms, and treatment goals. Preparations may include a review of previous imaging results, blood tests, and discussing any potential risks or complications associated with the procedure.

During:

Hysteroscopy is typically performed as an outpatient procedure. You will be given anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the procedure. A hysteroscope, a thin tube with a light and camera at the end, is gently inserted through the cervix into the uterus. Carbon dioxide gas or a sterile fluid is introduced to expand the uterine cavity, allowing for better visualization. The images captured by the hysteroscope guide Dr. AlShahrour in evaluating the uterine lining and identifying any abnormalities.

After:

Following hysteroscopy, you will be monitored in a recovery area until the effects of anesthesia wear off. Some mild cramping or spotting may occur initially but typically subsides within a day or two. It is important to have someone accompany you home after the procedure. Dr. AlShahrour will provide specific post-procedure instructions, which may include recommendations for pain management, rest, and any necessary follow-up appointments.

FAQ

Hysteroscopy is generally well-tolerated with minimal discomfort. Anesthesia is used to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Afterward, some mild cramping or spotting may occur, but these symptoms are usually manageable with over-the-counter pain relievers.

The duration of a hysteroscopy procedure varies depending on individual factors and the specific purpose of the examination. On average, it takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes. However, it may take longer if additional interventions, such as polyp removal or biopsy, are required.

Hysteroscopy can improve fertility outcomes in certain cases by identifying and treating underlying conditions that may contribute to infertility, such as uterine abnormalities or polyps. Discussing your fertility concerns with Dr. AlShahrour will help determine if hysteroscopy is an appropriate course of action for you.

Hysteroscopy is generally a safe procedure. However, like any medical intervention, there is a small risk of complications, such as infection, bleeding, or injury to the uterus or surrounding structures. Dr. AlShahrour will discuss the potential risks and benefits with you prior to the procedure.

Hysteroscopy is usually avoided during menstruation as it can affect the clarity of visualization. It is typically scheduled during the early follicular phase of the menstrual cycle when the uterine lining is thin.

Dr. AlShahrour will provide specific instructions during the pre-procedure consultation. In some cases, you may be advised to avoid sexual intercourse, tampon use, and certain medications leading up to the procedure. It is important to follow these instructions to ensure optimal results.
