Is Hysteroscopy Painful?

Hysteroscopy is typically performed under general or regional anaesthesia, which means that the patient is sedated or numb during the procedure. As a result, most patients do not feel any pain during the procedure. After the procedure, some patients may experience mild discomfort, cramping, or bloating, but these symptoms usually subside within a few days. Over-the-counter pain medication or prescription pain medication can be used to manage any discomfort. In some cases, patients may experience heavy bleeding or infection, but these are rare and can be treated with proper care. It is important to discuss the potential risks and benefits of the procedure with a doctor before undergoing the procedure.
