What is a Fibroid?

A fibroid is a non-cancerous growth inside the uterus that can develop during a woman’s childbearing years. It is at higher risk if the person is obese, has a family history of fibroids, or early-onset puberty. The symptoms of fibroids include heavy menstrual bleeding, prolonged periods, and pelvic pain. Contact a Gynecologist in Queens if you are experiencing uterine pain. 

Symptoms of a Fibroid.

There are a number of signs that show symptoms of a fibroid. Heavy menstrual bleeding, bleeding at times other than menstruation, low hemoglobin, and anemia can all be symptoms of a fibroid. If you are experiencing these symptoms, you may have a fibroid. Contact a Gynecologist in Queens for more information. 

Who Gets a Uterine Fibroid?

Uterine fibroids are very common in women. In the United States, 7 in 10 women will develop a uterine fibroid. You are not alone if you do develop or believe you have a uterine fibroid. It is essential to regularly be checked in case a fibroid develops.

What is a Hysteroscopy?

There are two types of hysteroscopy. It can be diagnostic or operative. They are both used to diagnose and treat any abnormalities in the uterus.

  • Diagnostic- It is used to diagnose uterine abnormalities. It can also confirm the results of other tests. The diagnosis can be the answers uterine bleeding, infertility, repeated miscarriages, adhesions, and tumors. 
  • Operative- It is used to both diagnose and treat certain conditions. It is crucial to help fix and stop any problems before they can become worse.

What is a Hysteroscopic Fibroid?

The surgery is performed with a local anesthetic, depending on the severity of the procedure. During the procedure, the cervix becomes dilated. The hysteroscope is inserted, and a gas or liquid is injected to expand the uterus. Then, a light on the hysteroscope allows the doctor to see into the uterus to remove any fibroids or find issues that can lead to future problems. 

What Happens After the Procedure?

A patient with a local anesthetic can likely go home after the procedure is completed. If the anesthesia was regional or general, it would require a more extended stay that is observed for your safety. You may experience cramps or pain for 1-2 days after the procedure. If you develop a fever, severe pain, or heavy bleeding, please contact your doctor.
