During hysteroscopy there are no surgical incisions but a special instrument (hysteroscope) is inserted through the vagina and the endocervix, while light anesthesia is necessary. The recovery is immediate and the woman can go back to her normal activities on the same day.
Therapeutic hysteroscopy, although simple in technique, is reliable and efficient, economical and easily tolerated, while at the same time there is a possibility of immediate pregnancy.
Especially in cases of repeated unsuccessful In Vitro Fertilization attempts, hysteroscopy is particularly useful since in this way uterine anatomical abnormalities of the uterine cavity are revealed which were preventing the implantation of the fertilized eggs (embryos) and the achievement of pregnancy.
Hysteroscopic correction of these abnormalities leads faster to the desired result, namely pregnancy and child-birth.
