For a hysteroscopy, a long, approximately 3mm thin camera instrument (hysteroscope) is inserted into the uterine cavity, and saline solution is flushed through this, so that the uterine cavity unfolds.
The interior of the uterus with the opening to the fallopian tubes can then be seen on the monitor and abnormalities can be detected. The examination takes a

few minutes and is performed in the first half of the menstrual cycle. It is offered in our practice (with or without anesthesia).

Malformations of the uterus that exist since birth (for example a septum in the uterus) can be removed surgically. Also fibroids and cluttering of the endometrium can interfere with pregnancy and would need to be removed before starting therapy.
