Evaluation of the uterine cavity is peformed with a hysteroscope which is a small fiber optic device that allows visualization inside of the uterus. The uterus is filled with saline causing it to expand making uterine fibroids and polyps visible. Often, these obstructions can be removed using the hysteroscope. This test is conducted in our office, while an anesthesiologist provides intravenous sedation so that the patient will typically neither feel nor remember any part of the procedure.
