How is hysteroscopy at JSC "Medicine"
Hysteroscopy is carried out in a hospital of JSC "Medicine". As a rule, a one-day hospitalization of the patient is sufficient; in the evening after carrying out the necessary manipulations, she can leave the center. Inpatient surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Mini- hysteroscopy, which is performed on an outpatient basis, is performed without the use of anesthesia (while the patient feels cramps comparable to the sensations during menstruation). The duration of the operation, depending on the complexity, is 5-60 minutes, on average it takes 15-20 minutes.
The day of the operation is prescribed by the doctor, depending on the expected diagnosis and the day of the menstrual cycle. For example, it is optimal to carry out general diagnostics on the 6-10th day of the cycle, and the establishment of the causes of infertility - on the 20-24th day. In each case, the date is assigned individually.
