Hysteroscopy (cont.)

Outlook

Many minor surgical procedures can be successfully performed using hysteroscopy, and it can be a valuable diagnostic tool. The outlook or prognosis depends upon the individual woman and the underlying condition or reason for hysteroscopy. Most women recover rapidly with only minor cramping and bleeding immediately following the procedure.
