    Question anyone had hysteroscopy before?Worry about period after hysteroscopy.

    Hi,
    I had hysteroscopy 6 weeks ago. The doctor did not find anything wrong inside. Everything is fine. He said I am ready for ivf. But after this operation , I find my period is much less than before and less than mormal bleeding. I had very heavy bleeding before, I wish period back to normal flow.
    Is there anyone in the forum had hysteroscopy knows about it.

    Thanks!

    Hi goodhope,
    I had a hysteroscopy, laparoscopy, d&c and dye test back in May/June. The doctor also did not find anything wrong with me. After the operation my periods were a bit strange - for 3 months I had spotting before my period which I had never had before and my period was lighter than normal. Fortunately spotting got less and less each month and my period is back to normal now. Hope this helps!

    Hi Goodhope

    Did you have a D&C?

    I had a laparoscopy and hysteroscopy a couple of years ago, while she was there, she gave me a D&C, which made AF much lighter and much less painful, which I must admit I was pretty happy about, being pain free! It also mucked up my usually very regular cycle for about 6 months.

    Hi there,
    A hysteroscopy procedure is essentially just putting a camera scope into your uterus to have a look around to check for things like polyps, fibroids, and anything else that might not look normal in the uterine lining.

    A hysteroscopy would not cause your periods to change. Given that they have, I would suspect that you have been given a D&C as well. A D&C removes the uterine lining so that it can hopefully build back up nice and healthy again. It can take a few months to do this. During your period, you don't shed your entire lining, so over time you should notice an increase in period flow again.

    You would need to ask your doctor exactly what happened during the hysteroscopy, but as I said, the hysteroscopy alone would not cause your periods to change like this.

    Thanks for Lillabuggle and Amabel.
    Very helpful, I will wait another month to see if the peroid back to normal.
    Now just worry the operation may damage the line inside.

    Hi, Henja29,

    Thanks for giving me so useful information. Sorry not know D&C. Could you tell .
    The doctor did not say he would do D$C before operation. but will ask him.
    The ultrasound found there is a fibroid in the uterus, he did not find during the operation. What i am worried is whether the head of hysterosocopy may damage the lining of uterus when the doc was looking for the fiboid. ??

    Totallyy agree with Henja29! I had a hysterscopy too and FS did a D&C for me (wo me knowing I was going to do that). Thereafter I was not expecting AF to come but it did on time but very light flow, but more than spotting. I ask him and he said still will have AF but light..

    Perhaps your FS has done a D&C for you, check with him. Yes a hysteroscopy or hysteroscopoy shouldnt cause AF to be light, unless D&C is done. I am doing a another lap and hyster mid DEc, hopefully my AF wont go mad since I wont be doing D&C this time.

    Default Period after hystroscopy

    I had hystroscopy at the London Bridge Hospital (UK) privately. I had two small uterine polyps removed. I had the procedure straight after my period. I had it done because of my anaemia and heavy periods (28 day cycle period, no flooding, just 5 day long periods with no pain and no clots). In 5 years i had 4 miscarriages at 3 months. I was told that it would be best to remove the polpys because it was causing my so called heavy periods, infertility and anaemia. So i paid £2500 hospital fee + £800 Dr fee + £200 consultation fee+£150 follow up fee + £600 anaesthetist fee and additional £400 for bloodtests and initial scan fees. Total of £4650. And everytime we see the consultant he charges another £150 with additional fees for tests! I didnt want to wait to have it on the NHS, as i wanted a particular gynae/fertility expert in his field. He was excellent.
    Procedure was uneventful, had no problems. Slight crampy pain for which I took nurofen, and 4 days of pink watery discharge.

    My period started as usual on day 28 (after about 3 weeks of having the procedure). OMG!! it was heavy! now i know what heavy periods are! I have just had 3 excruciating days of pain on the left side, and heavy bleeding, with flooding (each time i got up i would start bleeding through my clothes), now i know what flooding means. On day 2 and 3, I had large heavy clots. I felt as if i was passing out my whole uterus. I am pretty sure the whole uterus fell out - the clot was huge. After passing out the large clot on day 3, I then suddenly stopped bleeding - nothing! the pain has gone too.

    So, i dont know if i have been left in a worse state than before. I am not happy about being told that this would cure my heavy periods, because it hasn't. But i will wait to see if second period is any better.
