Diagnostic hysteroscopy and endometrial sampling are procedures used to evaluate and diagnose conditions affecting the uterus and endometrium, such as abnormal bleeding or infertility.


Hysteroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the insertion of a hysteroscope, which is a thin, flexible tube with a camera and light attached to the end, through the vagina and cervix, and into the uterus. This allows the doctor to visualize the inside of the uterus and identify any abnormalities, such as polyps, fibroids, or adhesions

Endometrial sampling also called an endometrial biopsy, involves the removal of a small tissue sample from the lining of the uterus using a specialized tool. This tissue sample is then examined under a microscope to detect any abnormalities or signs of disease, such as cancer or infection.

The combination of diagnostic hysteroscopy and endometrial sampling allows for a more thorough evaluation of the uterus and endometrium, which can help with the diagnosis of conditions such as uterine cancer, endometrial hyperplasia, or infertility.

These procedures are typically performed in an outpatient setting and do not require general anesthesia. However, some discomfort and cramping may be experienced during the procedure. Your doctor can provide more information about the risks and benefits of diagnostic hysteroscopy and endometrial sampling and whether they may be appropriate for your specific situation.
