Preparing foryour procedure

Hysteroscopy is normally performed during the first week after your menstrual period. This timing gives your doctor the best view of the inside of your uterus.

Before your surgery, your doctor may order some tests and do some examinations.

Your doctor may ask you to take a medication called misoprostol before the procedure. This can help to soften your cervix, making the procedure easier.  It can be given as a vaginal pessary or an oral tablet.
