Diagnostic Hysteroscopy is a usually a day care surgery. The patient is given a short general anaesthesia. The instrument is inserted inside the uterus through the vagina and the cavity is visualized.
If there is any anomaly like a polyp, septum, adhesions etc. it can be treated at the same time. The patient is discharged on the same day.
