Monthly after hysteroscopy: important points
Hysteroscopy is a method that allows you to inspect the uterus. There is a diagnostic and operational hysteroscopy. Like most invasive techniques, hysteroscopy requires a surgical experience and skill from the doctor. In the absence of such, complications may arise that entail a danger to the life of the woman.
Features of the procedure
Hysteroscopy is performed from the sixth to the tenth day of the menstrual cycle. During this procedure, the gynecologist inserts a hysteroscope into the uterine cavity, as a result of which an image of her cavity appears on the screen. During hysteroscopy, unpleasant pain may occur. Her treatment method is performed under general anesthesia, and the diagnostic procedure is carried out "live". Basically, this procedure lasts from ten to thirty minutes, depending on the severity of the disease of the woman. At the end of hysteroscopy, it is necessary to clarify with the doctor how much to refrain from intimate relationships. Doctors recommend abstinence for three weeks after therapeutic hysteroscopy.After the diagnostic method, this recommendation covers only three days.
Monthly after hysteroscopy can go with a delay due to the removal of the endometrium during the procedure. Hysteroscopy is carried out in case of violations of the menstruation cycle, bleeding, polyps, hyperplasia, uterine fibroids, when there are fetus remnants after an abortion or miscarriage, after a cesarean section, if the woman does not physically manage to bear the child. Basically, menstruation after hysteroscopy resumes after a month. If there is a problem of violation of the cycle, it is necessary to know its cause. For example, hysteroscopy was carried out after surgery, which is called curettage of the uterus or abortion, then it will take time for the body to restructure and the menstrual cycle resumes. Scraping is also called cleaning the uterus.
What else is important to know
This procedure is prescribed by doctors in order to remove the upper layer of the mucous membrane of the uterus. Most women notice that menstruation after hysteroscopy continues for a very long time.This means that during the operation the mucous membrane of the fallopian tubes or uterus was damaged. Especially careful to be when the first periods after hysteroscopy. If you notice a very strong blood loss, then it is necessary to urgently consult a doctor, as only a gynecologist can figure out the cause of the violation and prescribe drugs that will eliminate this process. If, after hysteroscopy, menstruation has a very sharp and nasty smell, a black tint, then this may be the result of any additional illness. This may be a sign of endometriosis, perforation of the uterus or uterine bleeding. Endometritis appears as a result of the introduction of any infection into the uterus. It manifests itself within three days after surgery. Perforation of the uterus or uterine bleeding occurs due to violation of the rules of the operation, that is, perforation of the uterine wall by the device. In the case of this disease, surgery may be urgently required. Keep in mind that after any surgery it is necessary to monitor the discharge and, if necessary, consult a doctor.
