Our fertility physicians use office hysteroscopy with some patients seeking fertility testing
Dallas IVF has a wide array of state of the art imaging and operative equipment to evaluate female anatomy, specifically using an office hysteroscope, to directly visualize the uterine cavity. A thin hysteroscope (a small fiber optic camera) is inserted through the cervix and advanced into the uterine cavity with the patient awake and alert.
The procedure does not require anesthesia and is usually well tolerated. Although the hysteroscope does not allow for visualization of the fallopian tubes, the procedure is a direct view of the uterine cavity and is an excellent diagnostic study that can diagnose fibroids, scarring, polyps, or other intrauterine pathology that may interfere with conceiving and/or carrying a healthy pregnancy to term.
