Is hysteroscopy painful?

Diagnostic Hysteroscopy can normally be performed during the consultation and does not require a hospital admission or anaesthesia. Normally, after a hysteroscopy is performed, it is used to obtain some samples of endometrial tissue to perform a histological examination and cultures.

Operative Hysteroscopy normally requires an outpatient admission and is performed under sedation. The clamps that will allow us to resect the injury requiring surgery are inserted via the same cannula that the fiber optic camera is inserted into.

The discomfort that can be observed after performing this test is similar to the one experienced during a period, and if the hysteroscopy has been operative, there may be bleeding (just like a normal period), which goes on for longer than usual.
