Following your pain-free HSG, you might need a hysteroscopy.

Common starting points for fertility treatments are looking for reasons behind infertility, so we know exactly how to help you. Many times, women begin their fertility journey with testing. This usually includes a physical exam and other tools, like a hysterosalpingogram (HSG) or a sonohysterogram. In some cases, taking a deeper look at your pelvic anatomy can give you the answers you want. One procedure that helps us do that is a hysteroscopy.

Hysteroscopy lets us look for issues, and whenever possible correct them at the same time.

Hysteroscopy is surgical, but it’s outpatient and done under moderate sedation. A big advantage of hysteroscopy is that it’s diagnostic. From the vagina, we insert a thin telescope through the cervix and into the uterus. The telescope lets us see any fibroids, polyps, and other growths—which we can remove right then and there.
