Endosee Office Hysteroscopy is an in-office diagnostic tool that lets your provider see the inside o your uterus quickly and easily right in his or her office, without the need for general anesthesia. Endosee helps find the cause of several common issues women face such as abnormal bleeding and infertility concerns. Before using Endosee, your provider will need to look at your health history but most women are able to have the procedure without a problem.
Your provider will first discuss and describe the procedure in detail, as well as check your vital signs. Then you’ll lie on your back and place your feet in the stirrups, just like during your annual exam. Your provider will look inside the vagina and prepare the cervix for Endosee. Next, your provider will insert the thin, flexible Endosee tube with a tiny camera at the tip through the cervix and then inside the uterus (womb). She will look around the uterus briefly, and then remove the tube. To get information, our provider may decide to take a small sample (biopsy) of the lining of the uterus after the tube is removed. The entire procedure usually lasts less than 10 minutes from start to finish. It is important to tell your provider how you are feeling during the procedure.
Since Endosee providers faster diagnostic results than other tests, your provider may be able to determine whether or not another procedure or treatment plan is needed before you leave the office that day. After your appointment, you are free to go about your normal daily activities.
Are there any potential side effects?
You can feel confident that Endosee is safe and minimally-invasive. Most patients experience little or no discomfort during and after the procedure. Some women do experience spotting, menstrual-like cramps and stomach discomfort, though. Your provider may prescribe a pain relieve to ease some of these side effects.
