Fertility Enhancing Hysteroscopy

Fertility-enhancing hysteroscopy is a medical procedure performed to evaluate and treat abnormalities within the uterine cavity that may be affecting a woman’s fertility. It is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the insertion of a thin, lighted instrument called a hysteroscope through the cervix and into the uterus.

During the procedure, the hysteroscope allows the doctor to visualize the inside of the uterus and identify any structural abnormalities, such as polyps, fibroids, scar tissue, or uterine septum (a wall-like structure dividing the uterus). These abnormalities can interfere with implantation or cause recurrent miscarriages.

If any abnormalities are found, the doctor can often correct them during the same procedure. For example, polyps or fibroids can be removed, scar tissue can be excised, or a uterine septum can be resected to restore a normal uterine cavity. By correcting these issues, fertility may be improved, and the chances of achieving a successful pregnancy may increase.

Fertility-enhancing hysteroscopy is usually performed on an outpatient basis under local or general anesthesia. Recovery time is generally quick, with most women able to resume normal activities within a day or two. However, specific recovery instructions may vary depending on the individual case and the procedures performed.

It’s important to consult with a fertility specialist like Dr. Mamatha CV to determine if fertility-enhancing hysteroscopy is appropriate for you. They will evaluate your medical history, perform necessary tests, and recommend the most suitable treatment options based on your specific circumstances.
